NGS Annual Meeting

In conjunction with the 2021 Virtual Family History Conference, and instead of our traditional in-person gathering (for the second year in a row), the 2021 Annual Meeting will be hosted online. The meeting will be held at 5:15 pm ET on Wednesday, 19 May 2021. Additional details on how to access the meeting will be provided at You do NOT need to register for the Family History Conference to attend.  
Speakers will include NGS President Kathryn Doyle; Treasurer Deborah Lebo Hoskins; Vice President of Society & Organization Management Cheri Hudson Passey; Membership Chair Bernice Bennett; board member Andre Kearns; and Executive Director Matt Menashes, CAE.
If you are unable to join us on 19 May you will be able to view a recording via our YouTube channel at a later date.
The purpose of the Annual Meeting is: to provide updates on the direction of the National Genealogical Society, including information about new programs and activities focused on genealogy organizations following the completion of the merger with the Federation of Genealogical Societies last October to provide a financial update to take questions from attendees. We look forward to seeing you online for the annual meeting next month.
