Conservation in situ
The 4th International Conference of the ICCM took place in 1989, once again in Spain, at Palencia. The rules for election to the Board were further refined and a new Board was elected with archaeologist Margaret Alexander as President, and the conservator Roberto Nardi as Vice-President. The proceedings of the conference were published as Mosaics No. 5: Conservation in situ.
Under Margaret Alexander’s enlightened leadership, the Committee became an even more established organization. It now ran its own secretariat and began to have a small income since, at Margaret’s instigation, members were asked to pay a small fee.
