The Midwest Regional Conservation Guild and Chicago Area Conservation Group are very pleased to join forces this year to offer two programs, a virtual meeting and an online lecture series for this fall and winter. Both programs will be free to all members of either MRCG or CACG. The virtual meeting will consist of a panel discussion from conservators from different areas of the field. The fall/winter lecture series will consist of eight stimulating online lectures representing a wide variety of conservation issues, disciplines, and subject matters.
