The British Association of Paintings Conservator-Restorers (BAPCR) is looking for

to fill the role.
The Secretary is responsible for all membership administration, book-keeping, and
public and members’ enquiries, and helps to organise and publicise events and distribute
our journal The Picture Restorer.
A PDF giving a full description of the position can be downloaded here.
The British Association of Paintings Conservator-Restorers works hard to promote
and foster the practice of paintings conservation in the UK and around the world.
We are the professional organization for conservator-restorers of paintings, and
have members internationally.
Membership is restricted to practising restorers, conservation scientists, students
on recognized training courses and trainees in private studios. More experienced
restorer members can have applied for Fellowship, our professional qualification.
Fellows would be expected to have an advanced level of competence, as well as suitable
premises, sound business practice and general immersion in the field. A representative
cross-section of their work was also inspected by examiners appointed by the Council
of the BAPCR.
The BAPCR administers a scheme for public enquirers, to direct them to existing Fellows
in their area (see ‘Find a Restorer’). They can then be confident that their artworks
are in the hands of an accredited practitioner. Members receive our twice-yearly
journal, the Picture Restorer, now in its twenty-second year of publication, and
attend regular meetings with a guest speaker at the Art Workers Guild in Central
