The National Genealogical Society (NGS) expects as many as 2,000 family historians and professional genealogists will attend its 2018 Family History Conference in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Michigan and other genealogical and historical societies are invited to showcase their organizations at Society Night, an innovative exposition, on Wednesday, 2 May, 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., in the Center Concourse of the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel.

Societies can reserve one 8’x30” skirted table and two chairs for $50 or share a table for $25. No electricity or internet connectivity can be provided. Table assignments will be made by February 1, so sign up early to secure a good position. Room is available for additional society tables around the corner.

Typically, society staff answers questions about their society’s activities, sell their publications, network with other conference guests, and help promote genealogical and historical research. This is a rare chance to reach conference attendees and tell them who you are, what you have done, and what services and resources you have available.

Hope to see you in Grand Rapids!
