While Jamboree sessions requiring registration began at 1:30 today, the exhibit hall opened at noon and the morning choices including a tour, a research trip to the SCGS Library, roundtable discussions, and more.
I chose to attend four sessions all concerning Genealogy Society Development. Wow! So much information; SO MANY IDEAS. Too bad I'm not 10 people (or perhaps I need to be 20). Cath Madden Trindle's topic was Projects. Then Schelly Talalay Darshashti spoke about Publicity. George Morgan provided a long, long list of Affordable Member Benefits. We finished with Josh Taylor's presentation about Creating a Website. Most societies have web sites, but Josh gave us great ideas to improve our sites. I wrote notes and more notes.
If you are interested in these presentations, you can order video or audio copies of them by contacting Conference Resource at www.myconferenceresource.com or calling 866-813-2451. No, I am receiving no compensation for this review. However, if you want some exciting ideas to energize your society, you can get them through these presentations.
