The Dakota Collections Care Initiative (DCCI) is pleased to offer a FREE disaster preparedness planning and response training workshop series for collecting institutions (museums, libraries, archives, cultural organizations, etc.) at four locations in both North Dakota and South Dakota in 2013. This is a great opportunity to develop or update a disaster plan for your institution with the assistance of a trained conservator, Terri Schindel, who led the 2012 DCCI workshops.
TRAVEL STIPENDS OFFERED
DCCI is pleased to offer 20 travel stipends per location for the 2013 workshops. Stipends of up to $100 per person may be used for lodging and mileage reimbursement. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis and may be requested through the online registration process.
You are encouraged to bring as many people from your institution as possible to all three workshop days and are welcome to attend whichever workshops best fit your schedule.

Funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the Dakota Collections Care Initiative (DCCI) is a partnership between collections care professionals at museums, libraries and archives in North and South Dakota to improve collections care and emergency preparedness and response for small and mid-sized collecting heritage institutions across the two states.
DCCI is based on the findings from statewide planning projects undertaken separately by North and South Dakota between 2008 and 2010.
Below is a brief overview of the DCCI activities over the next two years. For more information, please contact the project administrator.
