Abstract: These are exciting times at IIC with so many changes and upcoming events. This year we have gained an Executive Director, we are preparing to launch the redesigned website with our fresh new branding, we have a new Instagram feed, and on top of it all, we are also preparing for the 2018 IIC Congress in Turin this September. It is enough to make one forget to renew their IIC annual membership by the 1st of July! Well, I suppose I am also new, at least in this role as Editor of News in Conservation. I have been on the IIC Communications Team for the past 5 years helping to develop our social media and to grow our global community of conservators and caretakers of cultural heritage. I may be stepping into new shoes, but I will continue to dance with the same wonderful international team; our meetings are truly international with team members calling in from Australia, New York, London, Croatia, Washington D.C., Switzerland, and Dubai to name a few! I also have new plans for my column. As the name suggests, it will function as a sounding board for ideas, opinions, and issues that touch our professional community. Let’s get the discussion going!
