**Les Bénévoles-Day of Volunteerism** #ARCSConf 2017 is fast approaching, and with it our Les Bénévoles day of volunteerism for local museums. Please visit our website ( https://www.arcsinfo.org/programs/2017-vancouver-conference/les-bnvoles) to see descriptions of the participating museums and their projects. If you haven’t already signed up, we still have a few spots left. Please send an email to arcs4...@gmail.com with subject heading, “I want to volunteer”.
**Conference App is Here!** If you’re attending the ARCS conference in Vancouver BC this year you’ll definitely want to download our conference app. The app includes a schedule of events, list of speakers and sponsors, an interactive map of the venue and a map of Vancouver. You can find other conference attendees and send them messages, write notes, link to Twitter, and set reminders for the sessions you plan to attend. Use the term “2017 ARCS Conference Vancouver” to search for it in the Apple or Android App stores. **Resources for Natural Disasters** As our colleagues start to deal with assessment and recovery efforts in the wake of hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, and the earthquakes in Mexico, ARCS has compiled a non-comprehensive clearinghouse of information for those affected on our website. http://www.arcsinfo.org/programs/resources/hurricane-harvey-emergency-response **RCS Mentor Program** The RCS Mentoring Program (a joint collaboration between ARCS and the Collections Stewardship professional network of AAM) is seeking experienced professionals who are willing to serve as mentors to emerging and mid-career colleagues for a 6 month time period. The mentoring relationship is a mutually rewarding experience that offers opportunities for professional growth and development throughout all career stages.
