Members of the Association of Professional Genealogists have two opportunities in the coming year to discuss BCG certification with BCG past president Elissa Scalise Powell, CG, CGL, one in March and one in September. Elissa describes them as follows, “With only 25 APG members allowed to be in attendance on a first-come, first-logged-in basis, we will have an intimate chat about certification, how to prepare, and what it takes to be successful.” It is a great opportunity to learn about certification and ask questions of someone who has been Board-certified for 20 years.
Upcoming APG Discussion Groups
We are pleased to announce four [two relating to BCG] upcoming APG Discussion Groups! These meetings are open to all APG Members with no pre-registration and are a unique way to learn from and network with your colleagues. The access instructions for each Discussion Group can be found in the “members only” section of the website and include biographies for each leader.
18 March 2015, 9:00 p.m.: “Certification: Process, Requirements, and Readiness” by Elissa Scalise Powell, CG, CGL
16 September 2015, 9:00 p.m.: “Certification: Process, Requirements, and Readiness” by Elissa Scalise Powell, CG, CGL
The meeting room will open fifteen minutes prior to the scheduled starting time and holds a maximum of twenty-five attendees. Access will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
The discussion groups are meant to be discussions on a particular topic, not lectures or webinars. It is through the give and take of these discussions that the best learning experiences will occur. Please come prepared with your questions.
If you have any questions, please contact Melanie D. Holtz, CG, at Melanie@holtzresearch.com.
We hope you enjoy the meetings!
