Join Us for the 2016 Society Management Seminar

Is your genealogy society just getting by? Do you want to learn ways to engage your membership, work with other groups, and reach new people?

Join the Indiana Genealogical Society for the 2016 Society Management Seminar on Friday, April 15 at the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne!

UPDATE: Good news for librarians -- these sessions now qualify for Indiana LEUs!


  • Putting the Customer Back in Customer Service by Curt Witcher. Our societies succeed more when we view our members as customers. 
  • Fraternal Groups: Do-able Projects With Limited Volunteers by Ron Darrah. Hear good strategies for engaging in meaningful projects.
  • Reaching People on Social Media Without Spending All Day on Facebook by Amy Johnson Crow. Social media should be a critical tool for a society and its members. Hear about best practices to ensure good results.
  • Issues and Answers Discussion. Share the challenges and successes your society is having and hear what others are doing. 
Also available are a behind-the-scenes tour of the Genealogy Center and the Lincoln Collection.

The Indiana County Genealogists will also hold a meeting at the end of the day.


Members of IGS chapters can attend for free. Cost for others is just $5.

Register today! 

We look forward to seeing you there!
