AASLH Brings Collections Workshop to Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens
July 20 - 22, 2000
For decades AASLH has been known as the home of excellent and affordable workshops. This summer AASLH strengthens that reputation with a new workshop series constructed by a team of national leaders in the history field. One offering in that series, the Collections Management and Practices workshop, will be held at Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens in Akron, Ohio, on July 20-22, 2000.
The workshop agenda will cover context for collections, agents of deterioration, collections management and care, interpreting collections, an overview of resources available, and an application exercise. Lynn Poirer-Wilson, senior vice president for resources & operations at Strong Museum, and Rick Kerschner, director of preservation and conservation at Shelburne Museum, will serve as workshop faculty.
Other workshops in the series include: Leadership Institute for History Organizations,Historic House Museum Issues and Operations, and Interpretation Issues and Strategies.
In addition to the lead faculty, each team has an exceptional committee of professionals developing these outstanding workshops. Members of the committees bring to the curriculums many years of experience leading historical organizations around the country. They are accomplished and practiced in their respective fields, successful teachers, authors, and creative thinkers who break new ground in the development and redesign of new and existing history organizations. Each team includes individuals who are consistently sought after for their abilities to develop quality programming.
This new series of workshops will be offered twice a year at leading history organizations, museums, and historic sites around the country. The workshops address subjects in a "hands-on" environment giving participants practical guidance that builds on existing skills and develops new skills. Registration cost of $185 per AASLH member includes a notebook of reference materials along with two lunches.
