Emerging Conservation Professionals Network

Committee Description

The Emerging Conservation Professionals Network (ECPN) is charged with working in conjunction with the AIC Board Director for Professional Education and the membership department to:

  • Create and maintain a forum and network for AIC members who are entering the field of conservation. This includes: undergraduate students, pre-program individuals, graduate students, and conservators with fewer than seven years experience including graduate school or other training
  • Assist AIC in enhancing ways to serve our members who are just entering the field of conservation and help members as they make the transition from student to conservation professional
  • Foster communication among conservation students, entry-level conservators, and experienced conservators
  • Enhance the dialogue between AIC and the graduate-level conservation training programs; increase involvement of emerging conservators within AIC
  • Promote the importance of service and contribution to the profession
  • Recommend and/or provide educational and professional development opportunities for emerging conservators; encourage attainment of AIC Professional Associate status to promote the importance of professional standing within the field.
