3rd Announcement
SPNHC 2004: Strategies for Emergency Response & Salvage
19th annual meeting of the Society for the Preservation of Natural History Collections

This spring the American Museum of Natural History will host the 19th annual meeting of the
Society for the Preservation of Natural History Collections May 11-16, 2004. The theme of the
meeting is Museum SOS: Strategies for Emergency Response & Salvage and as part of this
year's activity we will be devoting one day of the conference's technical sessions to talks
focusing on issues relating to emergency preparedness and response.  The International
Society for Biological and Environmental Repositories (ISBER) will join SPNHC and organize a
specialty session covering issues related to biomaterials and setting up tissue repositories. A
one-day workshop that deals with practical issues encountered in responding to the first 24
hours after a disaster, the most critical time period, will follow the meeting. In addition the
we will hold a banquet aboard the World Yacht's MV Empress, so come along and enjoy the
views of the Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty.
