The Bay Area Art Conservation Guild was founded in 1974 for the purpose of providing an organization to coordinate and advance the knowledge and improved methods of conservation needed to protect, preserve, and maintain the condition and integrity of objects of artistic, historic, scientific, or cultural worth.
The Guild is a non-profit educational organization with a membership reflecting the various disciplines of the conservation and preservation fields. The Guild promotes general knowledge of cultural preservation and conservation activities. The Guild encourages high standards of ethical professional practice and the exchange of information among its members.
The Guild provides programs, activities and resources to its membership and the community, and works in conjunction with other educational and cultural organizations to further understanding of the conservation profession.
The Bay Area Art Conservation Guild is chartered under California law, and is a Federal Tax Code Section 501(c)(3) organization.
