You still have until July 1 to register early (and get a APG member discount) for the Association of Professional Genealogists' Professional Management Conference in Boston on August 30.

Not sure about attending? Here's an example of what you'll be missing!

"Print on Demand - A Publishing Option for Genealogists" by Birdie Monk Holsclaw, CG, FUGA, and Jake Gehring.

Learn about "print-on-demand," a recently developed technology which can offer new publishing and marketing options for the professional genealogist. This presentation will discuss the advantages and disadvantages, and give real-life examples showing the variety of printed materials you can create with relative ease and flexibility.

Professional genealogists and those considering a new career will also hear nine other great presentations. Nowhere else will you find the information and networking opportunities that can help you achieve, prosper, and grow in your careers.

Boston Harbor is the next port on your voyage toward a successful genealogical career. Don’t let the ship sail without you.
