Disclaimer: I have to tell you that I work as a volunteer for the National Genealogical Society, so I’m prejudiced. But I’ll try and give my usual, “tell it like it is,” the good, the bad, and the ugly. And ugly there is. I’ll address that later. First, the good stuff.
I love national conferences. These attract some of the best lecturers, some of the most knowledgeable people in the business. Other aspects of the conference may be good, but come for the lectures.
During each session (class period) you can choose a class from nine tracks (themes)! Wednesday there are four sessions (including an opening keynote speaker). Thursday, Friday, and Saturday there are five sessions each day. I’ll try and talk more about offerings later. If you have a particular instructor you are interested in, check the online conference program or the registration brochure.
There are two discounts you can receive over the regular $265 price: Early bird registration saves $35. Joining the National Genealogical Society saves another $35. (Annual membership dues are $65.)
But you’ve got to hurry. The early bird price expires next week, 19 March 2013.
Stay tuned for more details…
