We are a Chicago area based volunteer organization comprised of individuals interested in the conservation of cultural heritage.  

Our purpose is to promote learning and exchange ideas among those interested in, or responsible for, the preservation and protection of art, library, archival museum, or historical objects, and to foster social relationships among members, their friends, and guests.

Interested in learning more?  Join us at our next meeting.
