The Iowa Conservation And Preservation Consortium (ICPC) is comprised of a group of individuals representing museums, archives, libraries and other cultural institutions. The consortium’s members have backgrounds that cover a wide variety of conservation and preservation knowledge and skills. In order to assist ICPC member institutions we are offering to use our knowledge and skills in the form of a Service Day Project. We propose to have some of our members with the appropriate backgrounds assist you with a small conservation or preservation project or with starting a larger project. Depending on the scope and needs of the project some supplies may be provided by ICPC or its supporters. Examples of possible projects could be; rehousing materials, packing for a move or for storage, cleaning items, repairing items, assessing items or collections for conservation or preservation needs, or other related conservation or preservation projects.
The winning applicant will be selected by the Board of Directors of ICPC by March 29th, 2019. The winner will be announced and the Service Day Project will be scheduled with them. Please complete the application form by March 15th, 2019 and send it to us via email or mail to:
