FGS Announces Webinar Series on Society Management

Monthly webinars will be free to the general public.

The Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) announces the launch of our Society Management webinar series, scheduled to begin July 20, 2017. This series of free events will bring a much-needed aspect to the array of learning opportunities currently provided in the genealogical community; focusing solely on the leadership and management of non-profit societies.

The series will begin July 20, 2017 at 7:00pm central with a presentation by Fred Moss discussing The Open Death Records Initiative. The August session will feature David Rencher, CG, presenting on the best practices – and challenges – surrounding The Nominating Committee.

Each month thereafter will feature a new and interesting topic, ranging from recruitment and volunteer management to technology, publications, and working with your local tourism board. 

Registration will be necessary, and regular updates will be shared via the FGS Voice blog, FGS Voice Newsletter, and social media. Webinars will occur every 3rd Thursday of the month.

Registration for the July program can be found here.

  1. Great news - but about that day of the month - this month alone there are 4 or more webinars plus our local genealogical society meeting on the 3rd Thursday. Are these going to be recorded so those of us who can't attend live will be able to watch??

  2. The Webinar series sounds great, but a few questions.

    Is attendance limited?
    Will the webinar be archived in case an attendee cannot attend the live session (5pm in pacific time zone can be difficult for people who work / commute)?

    Thank you,

    Jim Knapp - President, Ventura Co Gen Soc
