10 August 2014 ~ Comments Off on A Great Event at the Genealogy Society of Southern Illinois

A Great Event at the Genealogy Society of Southern Illinois

Genealogy Society of Southern Illinois

I want to thank the organizers at the Genealogy Society of Southern Illinois for putting on a great event yesterday – their 41st annual conference! I was the featured speaker for the event and there was a large crowd of eager and engaged genealogy enthusiasts in attendance. We had lots of fun and with my four lectures I think the attendees have enough new info and websites to explore for the next few months!

The conference was held at the John A. Logan College in Carterville, Illinois which is about 323 miles south of Chicago. I traveled with Jane Haldeman, president of the Illinois State Genealogical Society, who set up a booth for ISGS in the vendor hall.

If you are in the Southern Illinois / St. Louis, Missouri area next August, mark your calendars for the next GSSI conference featuring D. Joshua Taylor!

Upcoming Appearance – APG PMC in Salt Lake City, Utah

Association of Professional Genealogists

Just before the start of the RootsTech conference, I will be one of the presenters at the Association of Professional Genealogists’ Professional Management Conference on Wednesday, March 20, 2013, at the Radisson Salt Lake City hotel.

The topic I’ve been asked to present is Launching and Effective Marketing Campaign.

  • Description: Have your past attempts at marketing your genealogy products or services been haphazard, disorganized and ineffective?  Learn how to build an effective marketing campaign and measure the results for repeated success!
  • Summary: Participants will learn how to track marketing campaign projects and tasks, how to build a marketing network, why timing is important in marketing, and how to measure the effectiveness of a campaign.

I hope to see many of my genealogy colleagues at this year’s APG PMC! I know it will be a fantastic even filled with educational and networking opportunities for genealogy professionals.
