Dear CIMCIM community,

The CIMCIM Board was pleased to see you at the online CIMCIM Business Meeting on Thursday, 5 October 2023. The minutes of the Business Meeting will be published in the CIMCIM Bulletin and on CIMCIM’s website.   

Other ongoing CIMCIM activities during October 2023 include:

11-13 October: Improved CIMCIM website structure, including menu selections for “About CIMCIM”, “Who we are”, “What We Do”, and added a new menu for “History”, including a single page for both upcoming and past Meeting and Conferences.

The scarcely used section “Jobs and internships” has been put offline. A new menu item “Stay connected” has appeared: This is the CIMCIM-L page, which previously was not very visible under “Resources”. The “Publications” page has been reorganised for a better navigation experience.

Please, visit the website and see for yourself!

11-13 October: Updated website with 2024 CIMCIM Mexico annual meeting, recent past Presidents and Board members, and archived Communications Working Group.

31 October: CIMCIM’s reply* to the revision of the ICOM Code of Ethics for Museums submitted to ETHCOM (* CIMCIM’s membership had no comments on the outline text proposed by ETHCOM).

Please, stay tuned for the earlier announced CIMCIM online Townhall Meeting on Tuesday, 7 November 2023 at 15:00 – 16:30 h Paris time (CET/UTC+1).

The CIMCIM Board will meet every month, and if you have matters that you would like the Board to take up, please let us know.
