The Association holds two annual meetings which often feature presentations by members on aspects of their work, and visits to historic sites and collections. These meetings provide a unique opportunity to visit conservation projects not usually accessible to the general public. They also provide a forum for those in the profession to meet and exchange views through informed discussions. All associate and student members are encouraged to attend and occasionally these events are open to the general public.
