Webinars 2017

The Association Heritage New Brunswick is happy to report that we will present 4 new Webinars in English and French during the months of February and March 2017. The topics the AHNB board has selected are “Organization of records” by Reagan Swanson, “Accessioning” by Donald Alward, “Education” by Karen Matheson and Program RE-ORG by Jeanne Mance Cormier. We hope that you will benefit from these three webinars during your slow time of the year. The Webinars are all FREE to sign up please contact Chantal Brideau at info@amnb.ca

We greatly appreciate the funding for our webinars provided by Canadian Heritage for the past four years. Without their support, we would not be able to provide professional development for our members in this way.

1. Accessioning with Donald Alward on Monday, February 20, 2017 at 2:00pm : One of the most frequently asked questions is, “how do you catalogue an artefact?”  This webinar would be intended to answer that question and to provide a training tool that museum managers can use for new employees and volunteers.

2. Organisation of records with Raegan Swanson on Wednesday, March 1, 2017 at 8 pm (subject to change): Paperwork and records are an important part of your museum administration and of your collections.  Learn how to keep your administrative records and your collection files in good order and how it can help your museum become more organised.  Learn the difference between semi-active records and inactive records, what is important to keep and what to throw away, and simple changes that can make a big difference.
