Conference? Of course it would.
All you have to do is help publicize the FGS 2015 Conference, submit an entry each time a promotion is published, and cross your fingers that your society is the lucky winner of the random drawing from those entries.
The FGS 2015 Conference will be held February 11–14, 2015, in Salt Lake City, Utah. The contest starts now.
Only FGS member societies are eligible to enter. If your society is not currently an FGS member, it's easy to join. Just visit the FGS website.
Publicize the FGS 2015 conference through your society newsletters, websites, blogs, and other publications. The winning society will receive an individual four-day registration for the FGS 2016 Conference in Springfield, Illinois. That registration may be used by the society's delegate to 2016, given away as a prize at a society event, or awarded in whatever way the society chooses.
It's easy to participate. At the FGS 2015 Media Center, societies can find resources to use in their newsletters and publications, as well as their websites and blogs, including logos, ads, and articles. These items can also be obtained by sending a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
