Orphans in the Collections: Unclaimed and Abandoned Property Workshop

Monday, January 24, 2011
Higgins Armory Museum
Worcester, MA
10:00 a.m ~ 4:00 p.m.
Registration Deadline:   January 17, 2011

Join us at the Higgins Armory Museum, Worcester, to discuss unclaimed and abandoned property issues and how they affect the museum community.

Several of our New England states have passed legislation to help the museums in their states deal with this challenging problem, but what does this legislation mean for you? What if your institution is in a state which does not have abandoned property laws? Our diverse panel looks at those issues and more.
