The FGS has started a new internet radio show each Saturday afternoon on Blog Talk Radio (My Society Online Radio by mysociety | Blog Talk Radio). Their web site describes it this way: “…each week we tackle the issues that confront genealogy societies”. Two episodes have already been archived and are available to listen to on-demand: 1) “Bringing Genealogy Societies into the 21st Century” and 2) “Genealogy Society Initiatives That Work”. The topic for Saturday, May 7 is “Planning Your Genealogy Society Event”. You can also subscribe to the episodes in podcast form via iTunes.
They are also developing a webinar series, Society Management Education Delivered Online. The first one (“Social Networking for Genealogy Societies“, a presentation by Thomas MacEntee) was held yesterday. FGS members have access to recorded webinars and syllabus materials in the members-only section of the FGS website at Federation of Genealogical Societies – About FGS. For more information see their press release.
