I wake up every day knowing that when I go to work, I will also be working on something I am passionate about. Having a genealogy-related career can be AWESOME, but without knowledge there is no success. If you’ve been thinking about a career in genealogy (and there are a wide range of careers available in addition to doing research!) then the place to start gaining that knowledge is the 2013 Professional Management Conference put on by the Association of Professional Genealogists.
I will be there, along with other genealogy professionals, giving you the tips and strategies you need to be a genealogy guru. Here’s the scoop from APG:
WESTMINSTER, Colo., 24 October 2012−The Association of Professional Genealogists (APG®) today unveiled the details of its upcoming Professional Management Conference (PMC). Top genealogical speakers will address this year’s theme, “Strategies for Building a Successful Business.” Tom Jones, Ph.D., CG, CGL, FASG, FUGA, FNGS, will kick off the event with a workshop and lectures on Tuesday, while Judy Russell, J.D., CG, will open day two of the event with a hands-on workshop on court records. The event will be held in Salt Lake City the 19th and 20th of March, 2013, the two days prior to the RootsTech conference (http://www.rootstech.org).
“Given the success of last year’s conference, as well as the breadth of this year’s theme, we have expanded the event to a day and a half,” said APG President Kenyatta D.
