Dear Genealogical Society Leaders, Program Chairs, and Members:

You are cordially invited to the Southern California Genealogical Society's Genealogy Jamboree on Saturday, June 12, 2010 -- and you don't even have to set foot in Burbank.

We would like everyone to be able to attend Jamboree, but we know that's just not possible. We have created several ways that you and your society can have a presence at the conference without actually being with us.

North America FlagsWith our geographic focus on Canada, Mexico, and
all 50 U.S. states, you will be sure to connect with potential members at Jamboree.  Our attendees are researching in all 50 states and many foreign countries. Don't miss this opportunity to promote your society's activities and resources.

Read on to learn all of the ways that you can join us
at the 2010 Southern California Genealogy Jamboree without packing a suitcase.
FREE: Great Lectures on the Cheap
Use GoToWebinar to Get BIG Presentations at Little Cost

Jamboree traditionally devotes Saturday's breakfast session to an Effective Society Management event.  This year, we are taking advantage of technology to offer the session to genealogical society leaders and members throughout the US and Canada.  Log on from the comfort of your own home or from your genealogical society meeting's site and learn how to bring lecturers to your society at a fraction of the usual cost.

Popular genealogy speaker, podcaster and blogger, DearMYRTLE, will demonstrate how to use GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar to bring top-notch speakers to your society at an affordable cost. While MYRT is addressing the room full of in-person attendees, hundreds of other participants will be logging on to GoToWebinar to watch and hear her presentation.

Unfortunately we have to leave the orange juice and croissants up to you; webinar attendees get everything but the calories.

The Webinar is free but advance registration is required. Click on MYRT's image above to get all the details and to register for the Webinar.
