Members from the ASIS International’s Cultural Properties Council will speak on the challenges of protecting large archeological sites in remote locations, the vulnerability assessment process they undertook at the Clunia Sulpicia Ruins in the Burgos Province of Spain. The presenters will address the threat assessment process as well the challenges of protecting a large remote archeological site in a non-conflict region. Specific points of discussion include the challenges of enabling security resources, effective law enforcement support, educating the community to the fragile nature of a site such as Clunia Sulpicia and the site’s value as a preserved resource rather than a mined resource. The Clunia project is the result of an ASIS Foundation CRISP grant and will result in the publication of paper associated with the project.

Chicago has been the center of American architecture since the late 19th century. The city's most important early architects Louis Sullivan and his partner, Dankmar Adler, designed the Chicago Stock Exchange, built from 1893 to 1894. When the original Stock Exchange was demolished in 1972, sections of Sullivan's elaborate stenciled decorations, molded plaster capitals, and art glass were preserved from the Trading Room. Using these fragments, the Art Institute was able to reconstruct the Trading Room in its Rubloff Building between 1976 and 1977.
