The ACOR Conservation Cooperative (ACC) was launched in 2006 to assist existing archaeological and cultural resource management projects with conservation efforts needed for the successful completion of the projects. 

As of this writing in 2013, the ACC has assisted 31 projects in Jordan with conservation and restoration issues in order to help them move toward final publication and museum displays of the artifacts recovered from the excavations. The work of the ACC is primarily executed by ACOR’s  conservation technician, Mr. Naif Zaban.
