FGS and PMC Conference and Advertising Deadlines Approaching

From Paula Stuart-Warren, CG, FGS/AGS Conference National Publicity Chair:

Early registration discount

The deadline for the early registration discount for this “Passages through Time” Conference for the Nation’s Genealogists is inching closer. This Federation of Genealogical Societies/Arkansas Genealogical Society Conference takes place from 2-5 September in Little Rock, Arkansas.

As of May 6th, the discount deadline is less than four (4) weeks away. If you register (postmarked or online) by 2 June 2009, you save $50.00 off the full registration price. This is also the discount deadline for the Association of Professional Genealogists Professional Management Conference. APG members can save $30.00 off the price for that special part of the conference. It’s easy to register for both online at the FGS Website That site has the full program which can be sorted in a variety of ways, details on meal events, Exhibit Hall reservations, conference hotels, travel and other important information. Of course, we welcome your registration after 2 June, but the discount will not be available.

Watch the Conference Blog for updated details that every registrant will need to know. The blog will also carry some special announcements from the Federation of Genealogical Societies and the local host, the Arkansas Genealogical Society! A subject index to previous blogs posts for this conference is in the right hand column of the blog.

Advertise your business, services, publications and memberships

FGS welcomes advertising from genealogical and historical businesses, individuals, publications, websites, or organizations for the conference syllabus and the onsite Conference Guide. The Conference Guide is used each day by registrants to find which lectures and speakers are at a given time and in what room, locations for special events and meals, and where each exhibitor is located in the Exhibit Hall. One affordable payment includes the placement of the same ad in the printed and CD versions of the syllabus and in the onsite Guide.

Advertising Cost and Details: Black and white camera-ready advertisement placed in both the printed and CD versions of the syllabus and the Conference Guide for just one payment:

1/4-page ad (3.5" x 5") - $70

1/2-page ad (7.5" x 5") - $135

Full-page ad (8.25" x 10.75") - $235

Inside Front Cover (full-page) - $325

Inside Back Cover (full-page) - $325

The deadline for submitting the advertisement and payment is 01 June 2009. Send inquiries, advertisements, and payment details to Conference Chair Jan Davenport at

If you have any questions about the advertising or payment, contact Jan at that same email.
