We invite you to plumb the pages of the site at your leisure. Among the delights you’ll find are these new functionalities:
Six, new virtual Knowledge Communities that map to the critical work being done by ICOMOS International Scientific Committees or timely, cross-cutting themes, designed to leverage the Knowledge Exchange power of the global ICOMOS network.
Subscription options that allows you to receive customized streams of thematic content e-mailed directly to you.
A new cloud-based Membership portal that allows you to join ICOMOS and US/ICOMOS or update/renew an existing membership online and in (almost) real time.
An array of archival photos collected throughout 2015 — our 50th anniversary year – that celebrate and recollect five decades of US international heritage engagement.
Are you Ready to Win Valuable Prizes?
The new US/ICOMOS website uses a blog format that allows users to comment on posts and to share them easily across social media platforms. Not sure you’re up to handling the power of that much functionality? To prime the pump, for the next 30 days we’re offering this challenge: The first two current US/ICOMOS members (determined as of April 16) to post three or more short but substantive and thoughtful comments on posts appearing at www.usicomos.org will receive 50% off basic registration to the 2016 IUCN World Conservation Congress, which includes within it the 18th US/ICOMOS International Symposium: A Nature-Culture Journey. Only posts made by 11:59pm EST on April 16 will be considered. Commence commenting!
US/ICOMOS gratefully acknowledges the support of the National Park Service, the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT), the J.M. Kaplan Fund, the Historic Preservation Education Foundation and countless volunteers for the re-launch of the US/ICOMOS web site
Special thanks is due Ed Fitzgerald, formerly of NCPTT and now of Jablonksi Building Conservation Inc., for his volunteer service as US/ICOMOS webmaster.
