Disaster Planning Redux:

Presented By: Ohio Museums Association and the Intermuseum Conservation Association (ICA)

Description:  In just the past 18 months we have seen hurricane storm-surge warnings along the shores of Lake Erie, museum galleries fall into subterranean sinkholes, debilitating snowfalls before Halloween, and more polar cold than most museums are used to handling.

In this new climate reality where change is the only constant, is your museum properly prepared? It is time to dust off your disaster plan and get serious about preparing for the disaster you never thought possible.

Join us for this half-day workshop where we'll help you map out the possibilities, plan appropriately, and give you the know-how to create a response team and tool kit at your museum. Don't simply assume your museum is ready to handle the worst that mother nature can throw at you, make sure you are.

Location: ICA – Art Conservation Lab Facility, 2915 Detroit Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44113

Speakers: Jennifer Souers Chevraux, Education Outreach Officer, ICA - Art Conservation and Dr. Ware Petznick, Director, Shaker Historical Society

Time: Monday, June 23, 2014 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Fee: $10 for Ohio Museums Association members, $15 for nonmembers
