Volunteering at FGS

Today I returned an e-mail in response to volunteering at the FGS Conference in Springfield, IL, Sept 7-10, 2011.  I signed up for nine volunteer sessions throughout the four days.  Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, network, and give something back to the genealogical community. 

FGS will reimburse volunteers a portion of their registration fee after the conference (if registered at the early rate, which I am) based on the following schedule:

8 hours = 25%     12 hours = 40%    16 hours = 65%

Volunteers do not have to be registered for the conference; but those not registered
may not attend sessions, monitor sessions, or receive any reimbursement.

I'm so looking forward to my four days in Springfield, IL.  After the conference, my husband and I are driving up to my hometown of Chicago to see cousins and school friends.  What a great trip we have planned, can't wait until September!
