COVID-19 Update: Looking Ahead

The CCAHA family hopes you are safe and healthy at this time. We wanted to give you a quick update on our operations as we look ahead to the coming months.
We understand that, when this crisis is over, we will be serving you in a changed landscape. In anticipation of this, we are working hard to innovate and rethink what conservation and preservation projects will look like in the future. During this shutdown, CCAHA staff has been busy with research and professional development projects that will inform how we serve you, and we are beginning to pilot new services, including remote preservation and collections assessments. We plan to share our knowledge by adding new technical leaflets to our Guides & Facts Sheets page. Our Preservation Services Office is developing new online educational programs, and we are expanding our list of COVID-19 resources for cultural institutions.
We will continue to monitor the latest health and safety recommendations. In the meantime, CCAHA staff is available by email to answer questions and discuss new and ongoing projects. While our offices will remain closed until it is safe to reopen, we look forward to serving you again in person as soon as possible.
