College of Fellows

The College of Fellows fulfills a variety of salient functions within APT. Overall, the college advises the Board of Directors on issues regarding the advancement of philosophy and practice of preservation technology. Members of the College serve on committees or in other capacities, as needed. 

The College of Fellows honors those APT members who have provided valuable services to the preservation field and to APT. Each year at the APT annual conference the College of Fellows inducts up to six new members.

The College of Fellows Jury, which consists of five members, reviews the nominations and elects those for invitation to the fellowship.  The jury, a committee of the College of Fellows, includes three Fellows selected by the College, one member at Large, and one member of the Board of Directors selected by the APT President with the approval of the Board of Directors.

A special thank you to APT's 2003 College of Fellows member, François LeBlanc, for preparing a tribute to APT and NTC pioneers from Canada’s National Capital Region for the 2017 APT/NTC Joint Conference.
