National Genealogy Society to Host Virtual Kickoff Workshop for its Newly Formed Delegate Council

Here is an announcement from NGS:

FALLS CHURCH, VA, 9 FEBRUARY 2021—The National Genealogical Society (NGS) will host its Delegate Council Virtual Kickoff Workshop on 17 May 2021 as part of its weeklong virtual NGS 2021 Family History Conference. The Delegate Council is the new advisory committee for NGS member organizations created as part of the 2020 merger with the former Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS). This inaugural workshop will focus on helping delegates understand their role within the National Genealogical Society. The workshop is by invitation only.

“Our hope is that the Delegate Council will provide the NGS Board of Directors a unique perspective and guidance on issues of significance to the field of genealogy and the family history community both locally and nationally,” says Kathryn M. Doyle, president of NGS. “We will also look to the Council to implement new initiatives that will best serve genealogical and related organizations.”

During the kickoff workshop, delegates will learn about the structure and function of the Council. They also will discuss optimum ways in which to collaborate effectively and provide feedback to the Council’s leadership. 

Early Bird registration is now open for the NGS 2021 Virtual Family History Conference. Learn more about the weeklong events planned for 17-21 May.
