In November, the 2022 class of APT Recognized Professionals was announced and celebrated during the Association of Preservation Technology International Annual Conference in Detroit. We are delighted to share that our Director of Conservation, Kelly Caldwell, and Director of Project Management, Sarah Kloze, have been accepted into this prestigious group.
In 2018, APT and the APT College of Fellows instituted a program to recognize the expert skill level of individuals in the various fields of preservation technology with a formal recognition of achievement. An APT Recognized Professional is a person who has specialized knowledge, supported by a combination of formal training and/or work experience, in the use of preservation technology in conservation and stewardship of cultural heritage. An APT Recognized Professional conforms to accepted international technical and APT ethical standards and works in accordance with the regulations and guidelines of the person’s specialty preservation field and the appropriate jurisdiction of their practice.
Join us in congratulating Kelly and Sarah for becoming APT Recognized Professionals!
