Association of Conservation Officers

- formed in 1981 by a small group of local authority conservation officers, to act as a support organisation for those in local government with a responsibility for the built heritage. After much deliberation, the association sought institute status and in April 1997 became The Institute of Historic Building Conservation.*

* The Institute had its official launch on October 9th 1997.
