Volunteers

If you are planning to attend the FGS/SAGHS/TSGS 2014 Genealogy Conference, consider volunteering as well. Volunteers help to make the conference a real success. There are many ways to get involved and time slots are flexible and convenient. You may volunteer before or between educational sessions. Assignments are in one or more 4 hour shifts. Volunteers receive a reimbursement of part of their early-bird registration. There are a range of volunteer opportunities.

Student Rate

FGS welcomes the younger generation to FGS Conferences with a discounted student rate. Students of all ages with a current student ID, from elementary school to graduate school, attending public, private or parochial institutions can register for the full conference student rate of $40, or $25 for a single day. When registering online, students should check "Student" next to their badge name. When this is checked, they have access to student pricing. Then, after registering, email a scan of their student ID to info@fgs.org. Or, students can mail a completed registration form with a check and a photocopy of their student ID to FGS2014 Conference, P.O. Box 200940, Austin, TX 78720-0940. Bring your student ID with you to pick up your registration materials at the conference. Home-schooled students who wish to take advantage of the rate should email info@fgs.org for details.

Each conference registrant will receive notice in early August that the conference syllabus of lecture handouts is online and ready to read. Registrants are urged to print the sections for lectures they plan to attend. If you prefer to have the full printed syllabus for you at the conference, you may order one when you register.
