I've been a strong supporter of the work that FGS does and highly recommend going to the conference if you can. If not, then perhaps, you can order CDs of some of the lectures that you'd have like to have attended.
I've been the FGS Delegate for the Allen County Genealogical Society (Ohio) for the past 7 years and advocate support of FGS projects and that the Society take advantage of all of the great benefits provided by FGS for society management and growth.
One of these benefits is the annual FGS Conference. The conference has a track, Focus on Societies, on Wednesday, August 21st, however, the conference is not just about managing a genealogical society nor is it just for FGS members. It is for all genealogists. There is something for everyone and I'll be sharing that info with you.
Registration has already opened and you can register online at the FGS Conference website or by mail with a conference registration form. Make sure that you register before July 1, 2013 for a substantial discount.
FGS has a special website for the conference, in additional to the regular FGS website. You can get a full description of the conference and register online there. There is also an official FGS Conference blog that will bring you the latest pre-conference news. You can sign up for the blog on the FGS Conference website. They are also on Facebook and Twitter. You can reach the FGS Conference website at anytime by clicking the logo in this post or in the sidebar of this blog.
Stay tuned as I will be sharing more about the 2013 FGS Conference with you. Hope to see you there!
