From the Vice President
Normally this column alternates between AIC’s president and executive director, but this month I am excited to take the authorial reins for my discussion about the 2023 AIC Annual Meeting.
The AIC Annual Meeting is a professional high point for our cultural heritage preservation community, where we come together to learn, to share our research, and to engage in social and professional networking. However, many of the issues we face as a professional organization and as members of humanity are complex; the sheer scope of the conference theme, “Conservation in the Age of Environmental, Social, and Economic Climate Change,” makes it evident that we cannot “go it alone.” We need to seek advice, listen, and learn from others to be effective participants in broader, more holistic efforts to create positive changes. For this reason, we are excited to be having a Keynote Panel as part of the opening session of the 2023 AIC Annual Meeting in Jacksonville. We have invited three inspirational individuals, Mr. Ennis Davis, Mr. Ben Garcia, and Dr. Nicole Robinson; they will share their ideas and insights to enable us to better understand how to direct our efforts and to keep hope alive while doing so.
