  1. Dear Dr. Dorfman,

    My name is Myandas Jambaldorj and I have been

    working at the the Natural History Museum of Mongolia

    as the Deputy Director and Marketing Manager for

    last 12 years.

    I became a member of ICOM 2 years ago and joined

    International Commission for Museums and Collection

    of Natural History this year.

    Natural History Museum of Mongolia is going to expand

    as the National Nature and Science Museum in the next

    few years. We are going to build a new building and planning

    a completely new scientific and natural exhibitions for our new

    building.I am planning to participate in the 2014 Annual

    conference in Croatia, which I consider to be highly important

    to our museum’s planning and future development. I have

    visited the Commission’s website, but I could not find any

    information regarding the registration of the Conference.

    I would greatly appreciate if you kindly provide me some

    information or contact info of an official with whom I could

    contact for further reference.

    I am also wondering if I can be accompanied by a translator

    and a volunteer of our museum who are not ICOM members.

    If you let me know if conference is open to non ICOM members,

    I would appreciate very much.

    Thank you very much for your help in advance.

    I look forward to your reply.
