Risk management is an integral part of the decision-making process for organizational stewardship. It is especially useful for those responsible for the care, survival, and accessibility of our cultural heritage. Risk management not only involves immediate risks to the safety of objects and collections, but also encompasses all the threats to which they are exposed; both events (such as fire, flooding and theft) as well as processes (including fading due to light, cracks from dehydration, and tarnishing caused by pollution). This workshop is intended to guide users smoothly through the steps of the risk management process.  Risk Management for Collections is a strategy developed by the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands (Rijksdienst voor het Cultureel Erfgoed, or RCE). The RCE strategy identifies, analyzes, and evaluates risks to collections. 

The Risk Management for Collections program concentrates on the further development of a user-friendly method of risk management. This program, presented by Dr. Bart Ankersmit and Renate van Leijen will make this method accessible to and provide attendees with the necessary information so that small organizations with limited resources may conduct risk assessments and manage relevant risks.

This full-day workshop includes a lite breakfast, networking luncheon, and resource packet. Space is limited! Don't delay- register today!
