The Foundation for Advancement in Conservation's (FAIC) Collaborative Workshops in Photograph Conservation Committee is seeking applications for a new committee member. The Committee is funded by an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation endowment, and charged with program planning related to photograph conservation and preservation.
Committee members provide input, ideas, and advice regarding program topics, speakers, and content that is open to international audience. They are asked to serve a two-year term, which may renew twice for a total of six years tenure on the committee. We ask committee members to commit to one virtual meeting per month, and may be asked to lead additional projects and act as liaisons for programs. This is not a compensated service opportunity.
