My Appointment to the ISGS Governing Board


This weekend I attended the quarterly meeting of the Governing Board of the Illinois State Genealogical Society in Springfield, Illinois where I was appointed to the board as Publicity Chair.  I will be handling various publicity-related duties including creating a social media plan for ISGS in order to publicize its activities as well as attract new members.

I was honored and excited when Carole McCarty, the ISGS President, contacted me back in January and asked if I would serve on the board.  I am looking forward to working with a great team of people!

In addition, ISGS is the host society for the Federation of Genealogical Societies annual conference in 2011 which will be held in Springfield 7 - 10 September 2011.

Congratulations! FGS in 2011? I am hoping to do FGS in Knoxville this year, and I also have ancestors in Illinois, so just maybe....
