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%
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!
