"I believe that becoming a CIMAM member allows for delving into common interests, as well as the ongoing issues and new challenges surrounding international CiMAM members; for example, in considering the effect of advanced technology and what possibilities exist for “best practices” around sustainability that may serve and support the artists and art of our time, well into the future."
