A Conference Option!

Ah, the NGS Conference. So far and yet so near. 

Why? Live streaming! The best of both worlds.

If you're like me this year and just can't make it to Virginia for the NGS 2014 Conference, you have the opportunity to virtually attend a part of the conference curled up on your couch, in your pj's, with a big bowl of popcorn.

Ten topics will be covered and they are separated into two tracks which can be bundled at a reduced rate. Track One: Records and Research Techniques.  Track Two: Virginia Resources and Migration Patterns.

The two tracks will be available live from the conference. They will also continue to be available for viewing for three months after the conference ends.

Cost for members is $65 per track (non-members -$80).
Bundled, the cost for members is $115 (non-members - $145).

The cost of a basic NGS Membership is $65. (You might want to add this to your wish list for Christmas and birthday presents.)

The deadline for registration is 30 April 2014. You will also receive an electronic version of the NGS 2014 Conference Syllabus. (It never hurts to have access to a NGS conference syllabus!)

I recommend that you look at the subject matter that is offered to make sure it something that will benefit your research. I see this as a good thing for those who cannot travel to the event, but it does take away that interaction and communication between family researchers that benefits us all.
