The Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) announced today that presentation proposals are now being received for its 2017 Conference, “Building Bridges to the Past,” to be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania August 30 – September 2, 2017. The conference will be held in cooperation with the Western Pennsylvania Genealogical Society as local host. The deadline for submission of presentation proposals is Wednesday, 1 June 2016.
“Building Bridges to the Past” references not only the many bridges in Pittsburgh, but the bridges between old world and new, as well as our journeys to discover our past.”
To learn more about the suggested topics, how to submit proposals, and about the speaker compensation package, visit the FGS website for the full request for proposals. The FGS compensation package for conference speakers is the best for such conferences.
That’s my personal financial opinion and I am a member of the Board of Directors of FGS. Board members are volunteers and I am serving my second term on the board.
While you are on the FGS website, be sure to check out information on the 2016 FGS Conference that will be held in the Land of Lincoln, Springfield, Illinois at the end of August.
