**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.

**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.  For
more information, please go to
