"Ask Me Anything" with Susan Maltby

Presented in partnership with the Group of Ontario Emerging Museum Professionals Committee


Tuesday, January 26, 2021
10:00-11:00 AM

Susan Maltby has a Masters of Art Conservation from Queen’s University specializing in artifact conservation and has been in the field for over 30 years. Her consulting firm Maltby & Associates was established in 1988 after having worked for the Canadian Conservation Institute for four years.

This session will consist of 3 key components in the style of “Ask Me Anything” format popularized on social media in recent years. “Ask” refers to questions posed by emerging museum professionals in the Ontario community - whether to the OMA during registration for the webinar, to the GOEMP Committee via the blog post announcing this webinar, or directly to our guest in real time during the webinar. “Me” refers to Susan Maltby, who came forward to generously volunteer her time to make her rich experience as a conservator available through this platform. “Anything” references any topic that intersects with the museum sector, museum jobs, museum networking, etc… anything that may be of interest to EMPs who would benefit from this information at this stage in their careers! GOEMP Committee Chair Madeline Smolarz will join Susan as moderator to keep track of and pose incoming questions on behalf of the EMP community.
