Les Bénévoles

As part of the ARCS biennial conference, Thursday, November 2 will be a day
of volunteerism for local museums.  The name of this project, Les
Bénévoles, translates to “The Volunteers”.

We encourage professional registrars and collections specialists to
volunteer for the day to help catch up on projects such as accessioning,
condition reporting, rehousing objects -- actually, any project that may
benefit by having help from trained professionals.  Take a look at our
Flicker page to see pictures of past volunteer projects-
