Policies and Procedures for Deaccessioning

Wednesday, February 21st @ 3:00 pm EASTERN

Deaccessioning should be a discussion at every collecting organization, no matter the size. Dyani Feige works with libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural organizations to conduct needs assessments and risk assessments, assist them in disaster planning, and help them develop policy and planning documents and long-term preservation plans for their collections. In this webinar, Dyani will examine the necessary components of an effective deaccessioning policy, including options for removal, ethical considerations, broad-level legal concerns (not from a legal professional!), and general best practices. Options for dealing with items such as found-in-collections and abandoned property will also be addressed. A Guest Speaker will join Dyani to discuss the field’s reaction to several recent high profile deaccession cases and how AASLH is working with members to address deaccessioning, as well as AASLH’s Statement on Professional Standards and Ethics revision project.

Fraud at the Museum: Protecting Your Organization from a Devastating Event

Thursday, February 22nd @ 3:00 pm EASTERN

Nonprofit organizations are second only to the banking and financial sectors in the occurrence of fraud, according to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. Financial fraud can happen to any size history organization from the very large to the smallest of small. But it’s only after they become a victim that the vast majority of organizations take steps to protect themselves against fraud. In this webinar, guest speaker Kelly Paxton will discuss the ways fraud is most often committed and then discovered. She will offer recommendations for policies and procedures that can not only prevent a devastating financial loss, but protect staff and board members as well. Join us for this interesting and informative webinar that will help your organization avoid becoming another fraud statistic.
