Live from LA - It's the AIC Annual Meeting!
Conservators are converging on the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in LA for the AIC Annual Meeting... and LA was kind enough to greet us with another earthquake today!
ECPN kicked off the meeting with an informal dinner at the food court of the Westfield Shopping mall food court. We had a great turnout and I had a lot of fun meeting new emerging conservators. I had the "six degrees of separation" conversation with a few people (of course with conservation it's more like one or two degrees of separation). Even though I know it's a small profession I'm still always amazed how I can meet a new conservator I've never seen before and realize we've worked at the same place at different times or have worked with some of the same people. I'd love to see a map of all these connections... there's a project for some enterprising and tech savvy emerging conservator.
Thanks to all the ECs who came out and I look forward to meeting more of you as the week goes on.
