  • This session will explore and discuss insurance needs for conservators who work for institutions who may also have their own private practice either inside or outside of the institution setting.
  • What are the insurance responsibilities and requirements for conservators on staff at museums/corporate collections also taking on private projects using museum space? What is the separation between museum work and client work?
  • What are the implications and pitfalls from an insurance perspective for conservators who also act as consultants? 
  • Disaster/catastrophe events: Museums and other organizations that open their doors to the public and other institutions for protection and damage assessment. How would insurance protect conservators who volunteer their services during a disaster
