logo-med-resThe National Trust recently completed a two-year process of revising its collections management policy to create parity between historic buildings, landscapes, and objects that it stewards for the benefit of the public and to use disposition proceeds to provide direct care across all aspects of this collection. This session will explore the process of developing and vetting these changes, along with the implication of these changes from the perspectives of the National Trust’s Legal Division and Technical Services, as well as a Site Director.

Chair: Katherine Malone-France, Director of Outreach, Education, and Support, National Trust for Historic Preservation, Washington, DC; Tom Mayes, Deputy General Counsel, National Trust for Historic Preservation, Washington, DC; David Young, Executive Director, Cliveden, Philadelphia, PA
