Conservator wearing magnifiers works on spine of book


CCAHA was founded as a membership institution. In the 1970s, small to medium institutions couldn't afford conservation treatment. CCAHA was established to address that need.

40 years later, we're still serving institutions.

To help you make the most of your member benefits, we are offering the following opportunities through December 2020 in addition to your existing member benefits:

Virtual consultations of artifacts will be provided via Zoom meeting with a conservator whenever you are able to return to your facilities and collections. This virtual visit will be recorded to facilitate referencing information conveyed by the conservator.

Extension of your membership year by three months—that’s a 15-month membership at the same cost!

Member Mondays, a special way to highlight members on our social media feed! (We will need your permission to do a post based on treatment we’ve done for you).

Reposts of any relevant institutional information to celebrate you as one of our valued members.
