The aim of the Bay Area Art Conservation Guild is to improve knowledge of all subjects related to the conservation of cultural works, to encourage education, study, research, to promote proficiency and skill in the practice of conservation of cultural works, to oppose any influences which would tend to lower standards and ethics, and to disseminate technical and professional information.
