The FGS now has the Annual Conference Program Guide available to look at and save as a PDF file for the upcoming September 7-10, 2011 Annual conference that will take place in Springfield, Illinois.
The FGS has also activated the online registration process to get yourself registered for this conference.
You can view the 16 page conference program guide here at:
I had previously provided a post on this blog on February 4, 2011 providing notice of this upcoming annual conference of the society. At that time all of the detailed information of the conference programs, registration process and costs for the conference were not available. All of this is now currently available at the FGS web site at www.fgs.org.
The society will take online registration but will also take registration by mail. You can just download and print the online form, fill it out and mail it back to the FGS.
It appears the costs are as follows:
- Early registration prior to July 1, 2011 for full conference is $185
- Late registration after July 1, 2011 for full conference is $235.
- Early registration prior to July 1, 2011 for a single day of the conference is $75
- Late registration after July 1, 2011 for a single day of the conference is $99
In addition to the basic fees noted above, the conference brochure notes that there are other fees related to the conference syllabus and a host of other workshop fees should you choose to participate. There are also separate fees for individual luncheons on each day of the conference should you choose to participate in these programs.
Take a look at the link I provided to the full program guide. All of the programs, registration material, fees, special programs, keynote speeches are noted.
I encourage the genealogical researcher to at least once in their lifetime attend one of these multi-day national genealogical conferences. You will be in genealogy research/education heaven!
Please take a look at the society website I mentioned above. You can easily navigate to the material, including online registration, for this annual conference. While at the site, see all of the other resources and materials that are offered by the Federation of Genealogical Societies.
Enjoy the program material, see what interests you, and make your plans to go to this annual conference that while not directly in our local area is at least downstate in Illinois.
