The 2013 - 2014 Fireman's Fund Lecture Series 

The Appraisers Association is committed to ongoing education for appraisers and each season organizes a six-part slide lecture series in New York City, given by specialists in the fine and decorative arts and focusing on specific areas in depth. Within the context of the talk, the expert provides historical background, an overview of the field, establishes current values and market trends, addresses problems of copies and forgeries and considers a variety of additional relevant issues. Following the lecture there is a reception providing networking and social opportunities for members of the audience. All lectures of the 2013-2014 series will take place at the National Arts Club, 15 Gramercy Park South, New York City. Members receive 1 C.E. credit per lecture.
