Oh no – I forgot to save my comment! What I wrote earlier was that we need to be sure this positions FAIC as a leader – while we (FAIC) support and enhance the goals of AIC there are also instances were we (FAIC) set the goals…. given our campaign we want to be certain this plan speaks clearly to the centrality of our mission and goals. Funders may turn to the plan before determining how they will invest.

We must connect our work with societal needs and challenges, including literacy, economic stability, cultural understanding sustainability, and reconciliation, increasing opportunities for external support and the creation of new partnerships.

Some may wish not to use “our” and “we” in this document – but I think such language can be more compelling …

I’d put a period after “supported,” and excise “in order that we may learn from our shared heritage.” In part, this is because the shorter statement reads more powerfully. But shorter statement would also avoid calling out “historic and artistic,” which we are dropping from our tag line. And – one might want to preserve cultural heritage for reasons other than learning. Enjoyment, inspiration, identity, remembrance…

I think this is too narrow – I don’t think we are only talking about urgent preservation initiatives, but also about making the general public and donors more aware of conservation.

Does Emergency communications refer to ICS terminology, structure, and forms? Recruiting and managing people for disaster salvage operations? Getting conservators involved in salvage procedures to avoid further damage to collections? Or communicating that a disaster has occurred to the media or other internal or external sources?

Right now the document isn’t trying to say that anyone should or must digitize historical records; it’s more an acknowledgment that digitization of new & historical records is often a priority, so members of the conservation profession should understand it well enough to represent our viewpoint in planning and execution of digitization projects.

Perhaps Outreach would be a better heading for this section? Since the competencies seem to be about reaching an audience beyond the lab or fellow conservators.

What is meant by “Digitization of records”? Are we supposed to do retrospective scanning/OCR or some sort of digital converstion of conservation documentation of previous treatments in our lab?

[Conservation is commonly treated as secondary in our institutions]
This sounds very negative and I also do not think it is necessarily true. Conservation has to be balanced with other activities in institutions and conservators are often not at the table when decisions are made. Perhaps this can be phrased more like: how can Conservators become more actively involved and claim their role as a key stakeholder in the preservation of collections.
