Ces recommandations sont fondées sur diverses expériences qui n'ont pas de lien avec la restauration, notamment en musique, en activisme communautaire, en enseignement et dans la rencontre de nouvelles personnes. Dans le cadre d'un plan de durabilité personnelle, on peut inclure l'apprentissage, le ralentissement, la concentration sur une chose à la fois, la découverte d'un bon enseignant, l'acceptation des erreurs en tant qu'occasion d'apprentissage et le partage de soi avec les autres.

2 I am honoured to give this lecture today. I did not know Per Guldbeck personally. People who knew him spoke about him with respectful tones. I still have his book The Care of Antiques and Historical Collections from 1972, and it was appropriate for the times when it was written. If you have not seen the book, his focus was on collections in community museums: a good general guidebook with some amusing passages such as his warning on the dangers of dry-cleaning after a lunch with alcohol. Through his book, Per Guldbeck lives on in the worlds Amazon, Abe Books and ebay. In my recollection, the Per Guldbeck lecture is meant to be thoughtful and not necessarily a Conservation lecture. So I have taken liberties in my musings but I will try and link my reflections back to our profession. My thoughts are based on the fact that I have worked over 30 years in the not-for-profit heritage/cultural sector. They are coloured by a point of view which is survivalist because funding for these institutions fluctuates and does not depend wholly on government. I ask you to bear with me, sit back and relax. My talk is also informed by nearly ten years of experiences with the concerns to care for ageing elders: this is a preoccupation with baby boomers. Elders appear in my narrative. beginning with my father who turned 90 last fall, and who lives in a senior's residence for Canadian Veterans in Toronto. In his paid working life he was as an engineer. At age 19, he enlisted in the First Canadian Army Corps in the Signals and spent five years there. Part of his army service was in Italy and he says little about this. meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. In the 1990s, economists expanded the approach adding in financial sustainability and the environment, in short: "people, profits and places." The Canadian Conservation Institute has recently published its Reflections on Conservation and this has many articles on sustainability within the context of Conservation. In Manitoba, many heritage, visual arts and performing arts organizations signed up for a detailed operational analysis in the Manitoba Arts Stabilization Program looking at staffing, programs, governance and revenues etc. in exchange for funds to come at the end of a five year qualification period. The Winnipeg School Division, where I am a trustee, has a Sustainable Development Policy to reduce its environmental footprint and engage children in this through their education. Today I want to talk about sustainability of you in your chosen profession. When one is young and starting out in a career, I believe that a person needs to have a passion for their profession and I had one. At the beginning, Conservation seemed to me to be a glamorous field where one could have access to and restore precious objects and travel to exotic destinations. In 1980, the year after my graduation from the Queen's Program, I worked Instead he prefers to talk about his experience in Holland. When the war ended he was in Groningen as part of the liberation army that the Dutch still revere today. Here he is in Groningen, second to the left (Figure 1). Apparently in Holland he did a lot of walking and once was asked by a young Dutch girl what he was doing? His reply was that he was walking and looking; apparently he did this a lot. These days it seems the buzz word is sustainability. The word came into use in the 1980s, defined by the United Nations as Figure 1- Canadian Soldiers in Groningen, Holland, Figure 2- Cathy Collins working at Poggio Civitate excavation, 1980 CAC Bulletin de l ACCR Vol. 36 No. 2 September 2011 septembre

3 for 12 weeks at the Etruscan excavation called Poggio Civitate near Siena. Other Canadian conservators worked there as well through the connection of CCI Conservator, Judy Logan. This picture, Figure 2, shows me working on a ceramic that was very frustrating and there is an excerpt from my diary on this piece, Figure 3, which I came to call "the pot from hell." This ceramic is now in the Etruscan Museum located in Murlo, Italy. It was a cold summer and the work was repetitive: I spit-cleaned a lot of carbonized seeds while trying to assemble this recalcitrant pot. We lived in a castello on top of a hill that was the Bishop of Siena's summer residence in the Middle Ages: it is largely a bed and breakfast now. In reality, there are high expectations on the Conservation profession. As students we begin with learning of our Code of Ethics. Then there are expectations imposed by others. These include people who think that collection preservation is an exclusive task for conservators and don't understand the time it takes. Artists may use new materials and combine them in creative ways believing that conservators in the future can take care of everything. While I served on the Manitoba Heritage Council, the Board members from all areas of museum operations collectively lamented the lack of teaching of history in schools, lack of funding, ageing of volunteers and so on. Another challenge is imposed by the Second Law Thermodynamics. For those who need a review this law states that entropy (chaos) tends to increase over time. I like the more philosophical interpretation by renowned Czech poet, playwright and politician, Vaclav Havel: "Just as the constant increase of entropy is the basic law of the universe, so it is with the basic law of life to be ever more highly structured and to struggle against entropy." This struggle uses up energy. Some people are lucky that they stay in love for a lifetime. Sadly I am not one of them which is why I work in another area now that is called Fund Development. I moved into this area from Conservation initially because I wanted to see the Winnipeg Art Gallery raise the funds to properly house and maintain the collection and art on display. Our then Director, Pat Bovey, was keen to get this done. We were successful largely through Cultural Spaces Funding combined with funds from the Museums Assistance Program, the Gallery's foundation and some corporate donors. The application process took several years as did the renovations. You can see the results if you take a basement tour at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. Essentially it was a large collection preservation process with work in the storage vaults and in the galleries. Over the past 12 years, we've done well in getting grants for projects. This fall we are looking forward to producing a touring show of the art of William Kurelek; another successful grant application generously funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage. Common to both Conservation and Fund Development fields is a lot or repetition, a high degree of detail and great burden of expectations. So how do you maintain a passion for what you do? How can you remain sustainable as a working person? This is where the walking and looking comes in. The message in my lesson is not to ignore the common experience of living and other people. Keep moving on a mental plane and physical one too. Accept change and move with it. Learning things that may seem at first peripheral to your development on professional level are the very things that can make you mentally sustainable and healthy. Make time for learning because it you may find out that something you learned in one context becomes useful in another. What follows is a list of my suggestions: Keep Learning and Don't Give Up the Things That You Like to Do Figure 3- excerpt of diary from Poggio Civitate excavation Before I began my study of Conservation, I was learning to play the bouzouki, the long necked lute known in music such as that of Mikis Theodorakis and songs like Zorba the Greek. I also studied Modern Greek but I gave up these things because I felt that had to get serious and get a job. What a mistake! After ten years of working I went back to university on a parttime basis because I felt that I needed to do something creative and I knew a lot of artists. I studied Fine Arts at University of CAC Bulletin de l ACCR Vol. 36 No. 2 September 2011 septembre 3

4 this stop you. Old dogs can learn new tricks. So many times I began a new song or a new technique and I start out thinking that I will never be able to do it. Sometimes I hit a plateau and it seems day-to-day that I am going nowhere but then later on, I find out that I have learned it. Looking back, I am amazed how far I have come. Figure 4- Cathy Collins, accordion and her parents, Margaret and Alex Collins Manitoba over the course of about six years. Through late 1980s and the 1990s, I pursued things as an artist and met with success although it took some time. A highlight was having work in the Istanbul Biennial in By the time I had arrived at the point of having art in the Canada Council Art Bank, I was already well down the road on another creative pursuit. For the past ten years, I have been studying the accordion, Figure 4, with Karl Mueller. Karl is older than my dad and has the common experience of being a WW2 veteran: first in the Russian army and later in the German army. Anything that you learn to do will pay off in the other areas of your life and your work. It gives you confidence for those rough times when you doubt yourself and what you are doing. Over the years, Karl and the accordion have taught me a lot within the context of learning music that can be extrapolated to life lessons. Accordion-playing is a body and mind pursuit. To play the accordion, you must become used to playing the chord buttons on the bass side without being able to see them. It is essentially the same on the right hand side although you can see your hand. Your attention is focused on the score and you have to learn to make the instrument breathe and to not change the direction of the bellows that supply the air in the middle of musical phrases. After awhile this becomes quite natural. It is not something you learn with your conscious mind. Accordion-playing may not relate to Fundraising or Conservation but believe that anything you learn will payoff in another areas of your life and work. Not long ago, I saw that Conservation of OnLine had courses listed for fundraising and volunteer management: excellent skills for anyone to acquire. We can all use a little help and some special funding for our projects. Learn from Your Mistakes and Let Go of Perfection Learning anything new can be challenging and it usually takes months before you can even begin to do it. As an older learner, one feels a little more self-conscious and even fearful. Don't let You must get over the idea of being perfect. Perfection seems to me to be a pitfall in Conservation because the profession is very detail-oriented and the desire to be perfect can make you anxious for no good result. You can also learn more from a mistake than by doing something right the first time. If you make a mistake, give yourself a break and fix it. New things may arise from errors. Christopher Columbus was financed to find a route to the Indies. Instead he found a new continent. This quote by Joseph Chilton Pearce, American author of books on children development puts it this way: "To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong." I also think that there is merit to sharing what we have learned by our mistakes. I have to confess to learning a whole lot when I shrunk a painting and caused the paint to tent. I had to figure out how to expand the canvas and put down all the paint. I had to find out what it was about this canvas that made it so sensitive to humidity and it took a great deal of work to repair the damage. I became acutely aware that I was not practicing my next suggestion. Slow Down, Focus and Practise When I learn to play a new piece of music, there is a temptation to try to play it through. I tell myself that playing it through is good for practice. Instead I have had to learn to focus on the parts that I play poorly. It turns out that it works better to learn the music in small bits and play these parts over and over again. Sometimes it means analyzing the rhythm and counting it out. I may have to play a single bar over and over again starting out very slowly. To quote Karl: "You can't play it fast unless you play it slow. Take as long as you want to play it slowly." Once I have it right, he then says: "ok, now go and play it at least a hundred times." As a consequence, I have developed an awareness that concert pianists must play a composition for years in order to be able to sit down and perform it from memory. They have had to play small sections over and over again and listen closely. I have found that you can't really hear yourself play or work on the nuances and your own interpretation of the music until you have it memorized. We have the idea that people are gifted in various areas. Certainly it is undeniable that some people learn things more quickly and have an affinity for some things. However, to learn something really well it takes time and determination to practice the same thing over and over. In his 2008 book called Outliers, Canadian writer and chronicler of social trends, Malcolm Gladwell, has made the assertion that 4 CAC Bulletin de l ACCR Vol. 36 No. 2 September 2011 septembre

5 being gifted may more be the case of being gifted with the time and having the dogged determination to practice something for at least10,000 hours. The Beatles had a grueling concert schedule in Hamburg before they launched in England. From biographies of Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol, I would say that they drew obsessively to become as adept as they were. We need to slow down and think so we can live in the moment and focus. Practice is essential to mastering a new skill. Look for the Patterns Looking for the patterns is an observation that comes from learning a new piece of music where I am confronted with a page packed with notes. To deal with this I have learned to break things down and look for the patterns within the score. Learning something new can fill one with anxiety about the unknown but if you look for what is familiar you will have something to build upon. Identify what you know and go from there. In the world of writing resumes, these are called transferable skills. just make that the exclusive centre of your focus. A Good Teacher is Important for Your Learning When you decide to learn something new, a good teacher is invaluable. Reading things is fine to see it you are interested in something. Sometimes you are far away from an expert and you need to read. When I started out working in Conservation, I was far from the centre of the Conservation world so I had to learn by doing. This was good because I had opportunities to try new things and figure things out. Now I would say that there is no substitute for someone showing you how to do something or for job-shadowing a person to learn. Karl told me right from the beginning that people can learn to play an instrument on their own. But he also said that he could hear right away if they had had proper instruction by how they hit the notes, something that is called articulation in music. For I think that this recommendation is also worthwhile for conservators who have to work solo or to pursue things like building projects, and managing other people or disciplines. As a conservator, you already have skills like attention to details, drafting treatment proposals, synthesizing information, and report writing. You can use these skills in a new context and draw upon your networks for help. In this digital age, it is a whole lot easier. Resist the Demand to Multi-task Somewhere along the way in the world of work, we arrived at a belief that it was admirable to have the capacity to do many things at the same time. Eventually we lost the ability to set boundaries and say no to anything. We end up frantically trying to accomplish too many things and making hasty decisions. I know this because I have done it and regretted the results. Then I had to forgive myself for the errors that I made. One thing that Karl has warned me about was trying to practice too many songs. Better to really focus on a few to learn the skills embodied in each one. Then have a little fun when you have worked on the hard parts. This gets back to Malcolm Galdwell's premise again that you can't master something if you are not able to practice it because of having to do so many things. Doing too many things dilutes the power of concentration. Back in 1991, Dr. Donald Redelmeir from Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto made the link between motor vehicle crashes and cell phones based on accident statistics. In short, he found that driving while talking on a cell phone was as dangerous as drinking and driving. Redelmeir's homespun philosophy is that life is a marathon and not a sprint stating that: "a great deal of mischief occurs when people are in a rush." So I would advise against trying to do too many things at the same time in treatments because you can't give your attention to things fully. While you are doing something, Figure 5 - excerpt of accordion score from Swedish Polka, Palmer Hughes arrangement each instrument the musician has to learn how to create this and a vocalist as well. This is a dead give away for the selftaught. Listening to music, there is a wide difference to hearing a set of staccato notes (short and quick with notes not connected) from legato (notes that are tied together and smoothly connected; you don't let go of one until you are about to strike the other). This passage in Figure 5 taken from the Swedish polka shows connected sets of notes that are legato with notes having dots: that are emphasized and shortened - two very different approaches. As it turns out there are degrees of staccato and legato. Learning to play them is like being able to add spices to a dish. Karl calls it the salt and pepper of a song. There are other subtle things to learn like playing a series grace notes before the main note in a melody where the first grace note needs to be struck harder than the others. No doubt there are places where this is written down but it saves a lot of time if you have a good teacher to help to learn this. A good teacher can prevent you from developing bad habits. Repetition is needed for practise but you don't want embed an error. A good teacher will also be patient to wait out the time that it takes to learn something, to not humiliate a student and CAC Bulletin de l ACCR Vol. 36 No. 2 September 2011 septembre 5

6 to be there to remind you if you are repeating a mistake. A good teacher knows when to put you outside your comfort zone, moving you into the area where you develop new skills and knowledge. They know when to hold you back to complete something and then push you forward. There is no substitute for having a teacher right there. Sure you can learn things in online and in distance education but learning a concept is different that learning something where proper hands on instruction is preferred. Making a mistake can be instructive but developing a bad habit is quite another thing. Even a short stint of concentrated job shadowing from time to time to learn something new is a good idea. The Value of Teaching I have reached the point in my music practice where teaching it will have some benefit. I know chords and the theory. Teaching to a novice will prove that I really understand the concepts. You can learn a lot about yourself when you teach too. I taught four years as a sessional instructor in a course on art techniques at the University of Manitoba, School of Art. Teaching is a great way to develop patience and learn that students are individuals with individual needs. In good teaching, learning needs to be learner-centered rather than instructor-centred. This can mean finding a hook for the learners. For example, at the Superhero Supply Store in Brooklyn children can learn to reach and make art through the experience of creating the stories for their personal superhero. Two years ago, students at Argyle Alternative School in Winnipeg were studying John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men and rewrote it as a play set in a rooming house in Winnipeg. They obtained copyright permission from the Steinbeck estate to produce their script as a film that went on to great acclaim at an aboriginal film festival. The students who acted in film and did the production are now in films studies here and in Vancouver. Hands-on learning is learner-focused and although we associate it with children, it works just as well for adults. When the students learned about egg tempera painting in the classes that I taught at the School of Art at University of Manitoba, we made gesso-covered panels and broke eggs. In the lecture on illuminated manuscripts, I brought in an artist-friend who explained how to make feather pens and then they drew with his pens. What better way to learn about print-making than to make prints. I suggest that some of us who are moving on in our jobs should show people how to do things in our field. We could record things on video and send them out. YouTube is another place to put them. Learn to Play Louder After several years of study, Karl advised me that it was important to be able to play louder which meant developing stronger fingers and playing more assertively. Music after all has passages that run the range of volume from piano pianissimo (ppp), very very soft, to forte fortissimo (fff) or 6 very very loud. For conservators, I would say that learning to play louder is like learning to speak clearly to the public. You can learn this outside of your professional role. Take a course like effective oral communication. Learning how to speak in public is important. Classes in written communication are also excellent. If we are "louder" and here I mean being more articulate and learning that communication goes two ways, we will be taken more seriously on a professional level. You can't get your message across if it is written in a way that confounds the listener or the reader. Work, Talk, Play and Live with other People: Share Yourself with Others In my opinion, we Conservators tend to indulge our insecurity as a profession by staying professionally separate from the larger museum professional organizations, such as the Canadian Museums Association. Because Conservation is filled with specialists, we have focused on becoming specialists when "General Practitioners" were what the country needed. I believe that the Conservation profession still suffers from being unknown by the public. With the exception of curators and educators, this is probably true of most people who work in culture and heritage. For the past 30 years, I have lived in a transitional area of Winnipeg, one of the poorest postal codes in Canada. Many immigrants first come to this part of Winnipeg: I have neighbours from Myanmar, Azores, the Philippines, Chad, Eritrea and Northern Manitoba, among others. Within one block of my house, I can eat Vietnamese Food at Pho Number 1, shop at Bueno Brothers Filipino Supermarket or Dino's Caribbean Mart. Working in the community around me on common issues such housing safety has taught me a great deal about listening to other people. For over ten years, I worked on trying to save a block of housing in my neighhourhood from demolition. I learned a great deal about crafting presentations for City Hall and working with my neighbours and with various government officials, politicians and agencies. In the end, our resident group could only save one house. After all the battles had ended I was interviewed by the CBC and I described all my work as the best education that I had not paid for. This volunteer work was also what trained me for Fund Development and becoming a School Trustee. My extensive contacts in the community mean that I think a lot more about the story that we wish to create for Canada's history because it is changing all the time. How can we reach newcomers, communicate effectively and bring in new perspectives? In this regard the Canadian Conservation Institute is to be commended for their 2007 symposium and the publication Preserving Aboriginal Heritage: Technical and Traditional Approaches that brings forward the perspective of aboriginal CAC Bulletin de l ACCR Vol. 36 No. 2 September 2011 septembre

7 peoples. Social media have also made it possible to have conversations with and give voice to a much broader community. I suggest that this can change, if we start being more vocal. We can pursue some things such as: Do talks to seniors groups or at schools Ask people in public relations if you can send out a press release about something that has been accomplished Get a spot of the institutional website Create a conservation blog Become members of boards, parent councils, etc. where your can have a short curriculum vitae that lists what you do or names your profession Build a house for Habitat, run a marathon etc. Build an alliance for a common cause Form a co-operative This list is endless. While sharing yourself with others and working for other causes, you will be surprised at how much you know that ends up being helpful in other capacities! You will build a network of allies and friends who can help you in the times when you need reassurance and moral support. Change Happens and We Can't Save Everything As preservers of objects, we need to become comfortable that we can't save everything: people who live now do not live in the past and we can't expect them to be interested in something unless it can link to their experience. Sometimes we can only afford to preserve the idea or experience or a fragment. A good example is a cluster of buildings near Winnipeg City Hall. The façade of the downtown campus of Red River College is the remains of a series of old buildings: the buildings were sinking so they were incorporated into a new building that overlies a back lane and attaches to another old building that was in sound structural condition. The new culinary arts building is an old bank tower that has a new annex that occupies the site of the Leland hotel that burned several years ago. I am sure there are other good models across Canada. In addition to changes wrought by the agents with which we are familiar, there is a frantic change imposed by technology and the idea of the value of the virtual experience over the authentic one. Keeping things in climate-controlled storage is expensive. Saving the record of something may be the only way to preserve it because this is all we can afford to preserve or the only way we are capable of preserving it. My example for this is a sculpture by the Russian Futurist artist Vladimir Tatlin, Model for Monument to the Third International ( ), shown sideby-side with American artist Dan Flavin's Monument for V. Tatlin, dated Dan Flavin's piece references the missing Tatlin work but it too is going to be ephemeral. As Fluxus movement artist, Geoffrey Hendricks, is showing us here in one of his 2006 performance art piece, Headstands, Three Variations, the idea is the work of art. By performing it for yourself, as Hendricks encourages you to do, you are keeping his idea alive. I hope that my thoughts have given you some inspiration to move along walking, looking and learning. Now go do it for yourself. Cathy Collins has a BSC from University of Toronto, a Masters of Art Conservation from Queens University and a Bachelor of Fine Art from University of Manitoba. As a Conservator, she has worked for the Manitoba Museum and Winnipeg Art Gallery with shorter conservation projects in Mexico, Italy and Winnipeg. Within Manitoba she visited many museums to advise on conservation and collection care for the Manitoba Heritage Conservation Service. She was a Board Member for the Manitoba Heritage Council and an instructor for four years at the School of Art at University of Manitoba. Cathy has also devoted countless hours to housing issues in Winnipeg's inner city. In 2009, she was elected as a trustee for the Winnipeg School Division. Cathy Collins possède un Bac en sciences (BSC) de l'université de Toronto, une maîtrise en restauration d'oeuvres d'art de l' Université Queen's et un Bac en art de l' Université du Manitoba. Elle a travaillé comme restauratrice pour le musée du Manitoba ainsi que pour la Winnipeg Art Gallery et a effectué de courts projets en restauration au Mexique, en Italie et à Winnipeg. Pour le Manitoba Heritage Conservation Service, elle a visité un grand nombre de musées à l'intérieur du Manitoba afin de donner / prodiguer des conseils en restauration et en soins aux collections. Elle a été membre au conseil du «Manitoba Heritage Council» et professeur durant quatre ans à l'école d'art de l'université du Manitoba. Cathy s'est dévouée sans compter pour régler les problèmes de logement au centre-ville de Winnipeg. En 2009, elle a été élue au conseil d'administration pour la «Winnipeg School Division».

8 President s Letter I accept the position as President appreciative of the many hours of work that have preceded me. My career so far in conservation can be characterized as one that has experienced the many challenges of both the private as well as the public spheres. My aim is to use the realities I have witnessed to understand the struggles of many of you. I will endeavour to represent you and listen to your concerns. The board has many exciting projects underway, as you may have noted from the March Bulletin, and/or our Annual General Meeting in Winnipeg. In my opinion, one of the most important of these is our effort to lighten the load for conference organizers, in an attempt to encourage smaller communities nationwide to host the event. I am convinced, even more so since attending the Winnipeg conference that the annual event serves to unite us and facilitate communication. I was reminded of the differences in our daily realities during the Emergency Preparedness Workshop this May, on comparing the infrastructure and recovery process in Red Deer Alberta, as compared here in Ottawa. We are looking forward to the conference in 2012 to be held in Peterborough and the conservators there are doing an outstanding job organizing it. We are incredibly excited to announce that the 2013 conference will take place in St. John, New Brunswick, hosted by the New Brunswick Museum. Website renewal and rejuvenation is well underway in an effort to render our public face more accessible, dynamic and practical. We are brainstorming marketing possibilities to ensure our profession is in the public eye more than ever, and so we welcome your outreach ideas and suggestions. On the launch of our new website, we ask that you watch out for a link to our nationwide survey of conservators. We hope you will all participate, as our aim is to find out who you are and what you are up to. It will be accessible to you online as well as via other media, for those of you who do not wish to participate electronically (see page 19). I have heard junior conservators voice their concern in their search for mentors time and again. This is something we are working on. In the meantime, I would like to initiate an interview each Bulletin, of a senior conservator. This could be undertaken by a member of the ECC, and hopefully offer an opportunity for a junior conservator to get to know a revered member of the profession and their career. 8 Lettre de la présidente J'accepte humblement le poste de présidente en étant reconnaissante à ceux et celles qui m'ont précédée pour leurs nombreuses heures de travail. J'espère que mon expérience dans le domaine de la restauration, ponctuée de nombreux défis tant dans le secteur privé que dans le secteur public, saura vous servir. Mon objectif est de puiser dans les réalités dont j'ai pu témoigner pour mieux comprendre les difficultés auxquelles nombre d'entre vous faites face. Je m'engage à vous représenter et à tenir compte de vos inquiétudes. Comme vous avez pu le lire dans le Bulletin du mois de mars ou avez pu l'apprendre lors de notre assemblée générale à Winnipeg, le conseil travaille actuellement sur divers projets passionnants. Selon moi, l'un de ces projets parmi les plus importants est notre tentative de réduire la charge de travail des organisateurs du congrès annuel afin d'inciter les plus petites localités à se porter volontaires pour accueillir l'événement. Je suis convaincue, et encore plus depuis le congrès de Winnipeg, que ces événements servent à nous unir et à favoriser la communication et la comparaison de nos cadres de travail. Je me suis rappelé des différences dans nos réalités quotidiennes durant l atelier de Préparation en cas d urgence en mai dernier, en comparant l infrastructure et le procédé de récupération mis en place à Red Deer en Alberta avec ceux d ici à Ottawa. Nous avons déjà hâte au congrès annuel 2012 qui aura lieu à Peterborough. Les restaurateurs de ce coin de pays font un excellent travail d'organisation. Nous sommes très heureux de vous annoncer que le congrès 2013 se tiendra à Saint John, au Nouveau-Brunswick, et sera organisé par le Musée du Nouveau-Brunswick. La refonte du site Web est en cours afin de rendre notre vitrine publique plus accessible, dynamique et pratique. Nous préparerons un plan de marketing pour faire en sorte que notre profession soit plus que jamais sous les feux de la rampe. Nous sommes en train de débattre de diverses possibilités de diffusion et sommes ouverts à vos suggestions. Au lancement de notre nouveau site Web, nous vous demandons de surveiller pour un lien concernant notre sondage national sur les conservateurs. Nous espérons que vous y participerez tous, notre but étant de découvrir qui vous êtes et ce qui vous anime / occupe.

9 This is just a taste of the many projects underway. I would like to thank all outgoing board members for their tireless work that goes on behind the scenes. Our President, Wendy Baker, our out-going VP, James Hay, Treasurer Pat Legris. I thank all who donate their valuable time to create our various publications and conferences. Our board members work tirelessly to ensure we are accountable to you. A few positions are still open and I urge you to contact your Regional Representative if you are interested in volunteering. Silvia Kindl J'ai entendu les plaintes des jeunes restaurateurs relativement à la difficulté de trouver des mentors. J'estime que la publication d'une entrevue avec un restaurateur d'expérience dans chaque édition du Bulletin pourrait être un ajout intéressant à notre périodique qui donnerait la chance aux jeunes restaurateurs de questionner un membre bien en vue de notre communauté à propos de sa carrière. Ceci n'est qu'un avant-goût des projets en cours. Je voudrais remercier tous les membres sortants du conseil pour leur travail soutenu, qui se poursuit en coulisses., c'est-à-dire notre présidente Wendy Baker, notre viceprésident James Hay et notre trésorier Pat Legris. Je remercie également tous ceux qui consacrent une partie de leur temps à la publication du Bulletin et du Journal et à l'organisation des congrès. Les membres du conseil travaillent sans relâche pour faire en sorte que nous vous rendions des comptes. Il reste quelques postes disponibles; je vous invite à communiquer avec nous sans tarder si vous êtes intéressé à faire du bénévolat pour nous.

18 The Merger Committee Explained At the Winnipeg AGM, there was a brief report from the Merger Committee and, for the benefit of those members who were not there, we have prepared this short article to explain who we are and what we are working on. Roughly two years ago, the idea of a merger between the CAC and the CAPC reappeared as an item for discussion on a CAC Board meeting agenda. As the liaison between the two organizations, I was asked to take it to the next CAPC Board meeting and see how it was received. Both organizations felt that perhaps it was something to reexamine, and it became an item for discussion at a subsequent joint meeting where it was decided to take a look at the studies that had been done before and see where they led us. Not surprisingly, this resulted in the formation of a committee and a call for volunteers from both groups. The resulting Merger Committee consists of myself as Board liaison, Andrew Todd (CAC) and Marianne Webb (CAPC). In accordance with our provisional mandate, we reviewed the studies that had gone before, as well as studying other organizations who offer accreditation and general membership within the framework of the same organization, like ICON in the UK. It quickly became apparent that if we were to launch yet another study of the related issues, we would simply be reinventing the wheel and that seemed like a waste of everyone's time. The initial studies were comprehensive and well researched and their findings clearly documented. It seemed to make more sense to build on them rather than repeat them. Accordingly, we drafted an official mandate for ourselves and received approval for it from the Boards of both organizations. Merger Committee Mandate To review existing models and discussion papers concerning the potential organizational joining of CAC and CAPC and develop a procedural methodology. Earlier committees found that the time was not right for the joining of the two groups, however, we feel that the situation has changed in the intervening years as have the organizations themselves. Issues such as the scarcity of resources, both human and financial, and the duplication of effort by the two bodies suggest that this is a propitious time to re-evaluate the situation. A merger is a delicate and complex proposition and involves much more than one organization being absorbed or taken over by the other. Neither is it something to be apprehensive about, because it simply cannot occur without the support of the majority of both membership groups. The merger committee has discussed the process in detail and has finally decided to start at the end and work out what a merger of the two groups might look like. Once we are agreed about where we want to go, we can work out the most straight- Le comité de fusion ACCR/ ACRP : compte-rendu Lors de l'assemblée générale tenue à Winnipeg, le comité de fusion a présenté un bref rapport. Pour nos membres qui n'étaient pas présents à cette assemblée, nous avons rédigé ce court article afin d'expliquer qui nous sommes et ce que nous faisons. Il y a environ deux ans, l'idée d'une fusion entre l'accr et l'acrp a refait surface dans l'ordre du jour d'une réunion du conseil d'administration de l'accr. Comme j'étais agente de liaison entre les deux organismes, on m'a demandé de présenter l'idée lors d'une réunion du conseil d'administration de l'acrp afin de voir comment elle serait accueillie. Comme les deux organismes estimaient qu'une fusion était une éventualité à réexaminer, l'idée a été ajoutée à l'ordre du jour d'une réunion conjointe subséquente. On a alors décidé de revoir les études qui avaient été faites dans le passé afin de voir où cela nous mènerait. Sans surprise, un comité a été formé pour s'en occuper et on a demandé la participation bénévole des membres des deux organismes. Ce comité, le comité de fusion, est constitué de moi-même (agente de liaison), d'andrew Todd (ACCR) et de Marianne Webb (ACRP). Conformément à notre mandat provisoire, nous avons réexaminé les études faites dans le passé, tout en analysant d'autres organismes offrant l'accréditation et l'affiliation au sein d'une même organisation, comme ICON au Royaume-Uni. Nous nous sommes rapidement rendu compte que si nous amorcions une autre étude des questions relatives à une éventuelle fusion, nous ne ferions que réinventer la roue, ce qui nous apparaissait comme une perte de temps pour tout le monde. Les études initiales étaient complètes et approfondies et leurs conclusions étaient largement documentées. Il nous semblait plus logique d'avancer en nous basant sur ces études que de les refaire du début. Ainsi, nous avons rédigé un mandat officiel pour le comité et reçu l'approbation des conseils des deux organismes pour aller de l'avant. Mandat du comité de fusion Revoir les modèles existants et les documents de travail concernant une éventuelle fusion entre l'accr et l'acrp et élaborer la méthodologie permettant de réaliser cette fusion. Les comités qui nous ont précédés ont tous déterminé que le moment n'était pas idéal pour fusionner les deux organismes. Nous estimons cependant que la situation a changé depuis ce temps, tout comme les organismes. Des problèmes tels que la rareté des ressources, tant humaines que financières, et la duplication des initiatives par les deux organismes nous laissent croire que le temps est venu de réévaluer la situation. Une fusion est une opération délicate et complexe qui va bien au-delà d'un organisme qui se fait simplement absorber ou 18 CAC Bulletin de l ACCR Vol. 36 No. 2 September 2011 septembre

19 forward way of getting there. Neither organization will retain 100% of its current structure, that is neither possible nor practical. There will be gains and losses on both sides but we hope that the finished product will emerge as a strong viable body, greater than the sum of its parts. Our committee is a small one, but it is not our intention to operate in a vacuum. We report regularly to the boards of both the CAC and the CAPC and from time to time we will be publishing progress reports in The Bulletin. As members of one or both organizations, your thoughts and ideas are important to the process. If you have points that you would like the committee to consider, or you simply have a question, please feel free to send us an . Your concerns cannot be addressed or considered if we don't know what they are. My address is Your message will receive an acknowledgement and will be circulated to the other committee members. Julia M. Landry CAC-CAPC Liaison contrôler par un autre. Ce n'est pas non plus quelque chose qu'il faut appréhender, car elle ne pourra jamais se réaliser sans le soutien de la majorité des membres des deux groupes. Le comité de fusion s'est penché sur le processus et a finalement décidé d'aborder le problème par la fin en déterminant à quoi une fusion entre les groupes ressemblerait. Une fois que nous nous sommes entendus sur ce que nous voulons atteindre, nous pouvons établir la façon la plus directe d'y parvenir. Aucun des deux organismes ne pourra conserver sa structure actuelle dans son intégralité, car ce ne serait ni possible, ni pratique. Il y aura des gains et des pertes des deux côtés, mais nous espérons que le résultat final donnera un organisme fort et durable, plus grand que la somme de ses parties. Notre comité est petit, mais nous ne comptons pas évoluer en vase clos. Nous rendons régulièrement des comptes tant à l'accr qu'à l'acrp et, de temps en temps, nous publierons des mises à jour dans le Bulletin. À titre de membre d'une ou des deux organisations, vos commentaires et suggestions sont très importants dans le processus. Si vous avez des idées à soumettre au comité ou si vous avez une question à nous poser, n'hésitez pas à nous envoyer un courriel.

20 CAC-Emerging Conservators Committee Jessica Lafrance has stepped down from her position as Co-chair of CAC-ECC to pursue her new position as Vice President of the CAC. Congratulations Jessica! In her place, Meaghan Monaghan will be joining Elspeth Jordan as Co-chairs for the remainder of the 2010/11 term. Meaghan Monaghan graduated from Queen's with a Master of Art Conservation in 2010 and she is currently a Painting Conservation Fellow at the Yale University Art Gallery, working with a team to conserve a series of 19th-century American decorative murals. We are very happy to say that we are in the process of becoming a permanent committee within the CAC. Our main goals in the recent months have been to increase awareness of our committee and inform emerging conservators of the benefits of CAC membership. A CAC-ECC representative visited each of the training programs, Algonquin, Fleming, and Queen's, to provide information about CAC membership and we will continue to do this every fall. In May committee volunteers Stephanie Porto and Jennifer Roberts partnered with AIC's Emerging Conservation Professionals Network to give a short talk and present a poster about CAC-ECC at the ANAGPIC Student Conference in Delaware. Finally, the CAC-ECC Meet & Greet at the conference in Winnipeg was a huge success. Current students and recent graduates were joined by many enthusiastic established conservators for red velvet cupcakes, ice cream floats, wine, great conversation and networking. Thank you so much to all those who participated! Two projects currently in the works are another CAC- ECC Meet & Greet at the CCI Adhesives Symposium in Ottawa this October and the creation of The Emerging Conservators Survival Guide. Call for Submission for The Emerging Conservators Survival Guide: Does the thought of forms, flights and customs send you into a fury? You can relax! Work is starting on The Emerging Conservators Survival Guide! This guide will provide information so that you can boldly go where others have gone before. We need your tips, tricks, and horror stories related to studying, undertaking internships and working abroad. This guide will be published as a digital document, and as a pamphlet for dissemination throughout the Canadian conservation community. Please send your information or questions to Comité des restaurateurs émergents Jessica Lafrance a quitté ses fonctions de coprésidente du CRE afin d'occuper celles de vice-présidente de l'accr. Félicitations Jessica! Pour la remplacer, Meaghan Monaghan se joindra à Elspeth Jordan à titre de coprésidente pour le reste du mandat Meaghan Monaghan a obtenu sa maîtrise en conservation des œuvres d'art de l'université Queen's en 2010 et est actuellement boursière en conservation de tableaux à la galerie d'art de l'université Yale, où elle travaille avec une équipe à la restauration d'une série de murales décoratives américaines du 19e siècle. Nous sommes très heureux d'annoncer que le comité est en passe de devenir un comité permanent de l'accr. Dans les derniers mois, nos principaux objectifs ont été de faire connaître notre comité et d'informer les restaurateurs émergents des avantages d'une adhésion à l'accr. Un représentant du CRE a rencontré les étudiants de chacun des programmes de formation (Collège Algonquin, Collège Fleming et Université Queen's) pour diffuser des renseignements à propos de l'adhésion à l'accr. Nous répéterons l'expérience chaque automne. En mai, les bénévoles Stephanie Porto et Jennifer Roberts se sont alliées au Emerging Conservation Professionals Network de l'aic pour donner une courte présentation et présenter une affiche à propos du CRE de l'accr au congrès des étudiants de l'anagpic, au Delaware. Aussi, le cocktail de bienvenue organisé par le CRE lors du congrès de l'accr à Winnipeg a été un grand succès. Les étudiants et les récents diplômés ont été rejoints par des conservateurs-restaurateurs établis et enthousiastes avec au programme des petits gâteaux rouge velours, des flotteurs glacés, du vin, de captivantes conversations et de belles occasions de réseautage. Merci à tous les participants! Parmi nos autres projets en cours, notons un autre cocktail de bienvenue du CRE de l'accr qui aura lieu dans le cadre du Symposium sur les adhésifs de l'icc à Ottawa en octobre et la création du Guide de survie du restaurateur émergent. Invitation à nous faire parvenir du contenu pour le Guide de survie du restaurateur émergent : La simple idée de remplir des formulaires, de prendre l'avion et de passer les douanes vous rend nerveux? Vous pouvez relaxer! Nous amorçons la rédaction du Guide 20 CAC Bulletin de l ACCR Vol. 36 No. 2 September 2011 septembre
