Notes to Delegates

  • Please make every effort to attend. The Delegate Council meets in person once each year, and your participation is needed and valued. After virtual meetings and a successful first in-person session at the NGS 2022 Family History Conference, NGS is excited to welcome you at this important event and grow our community.
  • Rooms fill quickly at conference hotels, so make a reservation immediately for the best availability.
  • You’re encouraged to also register for and participate in other organization events and the entire Family History Conference. Immediately following the Delegate Council meeting on 31 May 2023 will be FOCUS and the SLAM! Idea Showcase. The conference begins that evening with the opening of the Expo Hall and runs through 3 June 2023.
  • One benefit for organization members is that up to three leaders can attend the Family History Conference at the discounted individual member rate if they are not NGS members. Please contact registrar@ngsgenealogy.org to use this benefit.
