Indian River Genealogical Society

Team of 4-5 Volunteers Wanted

We recently held the 38th annual Genealogy Conference in February and it will soon be time to start planning next year’s program. What will the topic(s) be? Who will the speakers be? Will it be or virtual or in-person?  Where will it be held?  These are just some of the decisions that will need to be made. The board of directors are available for counsel and updates are shared at each board meeting leading up to the event.  Most of the board members are familiar with the project planning. We have tentatively asked the First Presbyterian Church to pencil-in Saturday, February 12, 2022 for us in case we decide to have an in-person event at that location. We are re looking for a few good people to organize it to relieve this year’s team.  The organization process is well documented and easy to follow.  Let’s see some new faces make this fun activity happen for the 39th year.   Please contact Jeff Graham or Mike Godown now to express your interest.
