The final webinar, Art Claims: Disaster Response and Risk Management, will air September 29, 2022 from 1:00pm – 2:00pm ET and will discuss the effects of small and large-scale disaster events.

Both webinars will be presented by Heather Becker, a fine arts business entrepreneur and CEO of The Conservation Center.

Henley, Chair of ASA’s Personal Property Discipline Committee and specialist in books and manuscripts.
