The 2008 INTO Annual Report listed 22 subscribing members and introduced the INTO team and our early priorities:
“The INTO Executive Committee consists of 12 members who are responsible for the organisation’s management and administration. During the 2008 calendar year, the Committee held eleven meetings. Ten were held by telephone conference call, with one on-site meeting in Bratislava, hosted by the National Trust of Slovakia (6–7 November 2008).
The Committee focused their meetings on four priorities for the new organisation:
• developing an organisational strategy for 2008-2010
• establishing the INTO Secretariat
• creating regional groups
• decision-making related to the 13th and 14th International Conferences
INTO has gotten off to a strong start with the appointments of three very experienced preservation professionals to form the inaugural INTO Secretariat. Although the current positions are all part-time, the capacity INTO to now achieve many, if not most, of the preferred tasks identified in New Delhi is now assured.”
Here’s also a sample of our e-bulletins from the year – sadly some of the links no longer work but they are an interesting read anyway.
