The Migelien Gerritzen Fellowship for conservation and scientific research
The Getty Conservation Institute (GCI), located in Los Angeles, California, and one of the operating programs of the J. Paul Getty Trust, works internationally to advance conservation practice in the visual arts—broadly interpreted to include objects, collections, architecture, and sites. The Institute serves the conservation community through scientific research, education and training, field projects, and the dissemination of information. In all its endeavors, the GCI creates and delivers knowledge that contributes to the conservation of the world's cultural heritage.
IIC holds an Annual General Meeting every year which every IIC Fellow, Honorary Fellow, Individual member and student member is invited to attend. The Annual General Meeting is to allow Council (IIC’s charity trustees) to explain their management of the Institute to the members and it also provides members with an opportunity to ask questions before voting on the business items on the agenda, and to elect, or re-elect, members of Council to run the Institute for the next twelve months.
At IIC’s 2018 Annual General Meeting, to be held in London on Monday 22nd January 2018, a number of Council positions will be open to a ballot of IIC Individual members and Fellows and there are five positions open to candidates. If you or an IIC member you know wishes to contribute to the development of heritage conservation, please take part or bring this opportunity to their attention. Nominations for these positions are welcomed.

The aim of the workshop is to support practitioners in their practical applications of solvents. This will be achieved by providing a review of knowledge with an overview including recent research into solvent effects, current findings into solvent application techniques, and an open forum for discussions covering workshop participants' questions, practical experiences and opinions regarding solvent choices and application.
