Conferences Geared Toward Professionals

conference2_mediumGive your research skills a boost by attending a conference geared toward the professional genealogist.  Two that come to mind are the APG (Association of Professional Genealogists) Professional Management Conference, held 29 September through 1 October 2017 in Arlington, Virginia (Washington, D.C., essentially), and the future SLIG (Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy) Academy for Professionals in Salt Lake City, sponsored by the Utah Genealogical Association.

The SLIG Academy was newly announced and will begin 21 January 2019 the week following SLIG.  Note that it is not following the upcoming 2018 SLIG, but is the following year, so start saving and planning now.


Do You Have What it Takes?

Yes-or-noDo you think your genealogical research and writing skills are at a professional level? ICAPGen’s℠ study group is meant to help guide interested persons–who already have achieved a certain advanced skill level in research and writing–to complete the steps required to obtain the Accredited Genealogist® credential.

If you think you might have what it takes, sign up on our study group interest list. If your work samples do not meet the expectations of the ICAPGen study group committee you will be given feedback about how to improve your work samples and encouraged to reapply for the study group after improving your work.
