My relationship with ARCE goes back to my days as a graduate student, when its annual meetings were a wonderful way for me to meet colleagues and have a chance to learn about their work. I became much more involved with this organization during my years in Egypt. In 2004, I assisted ARCE's director with an exhibition, from which I learned a great deal, and then went on to serve as project director for a series of grants focused on documentation and collections management at the Egyptian Museum, Cairo. Thanks to the unwavering support and vision of ARCE's leadership, this important museum now has a functioning collections management database and Egypt's first registrars' office. I have the highest regard for ARCE and the essential roles it plays -- both in terms of the preservation, documentation, and study of Egypt's monuments, and as the primary organization through which North Americans who study all periods of Egypt's history can come together.
