SLAM! Idea Showcase

Virtual Program: Thursday, 16 May 2024

7:00 p.m.–7:15 p.m. ET

The 2024 SLAM! Idea Showcase is part of the NGS Virtual Family History Conference. The showcase highlights outstanding projects or programs by societies, libraries, archives, museums, and other institutions (SLAM).

What is the SLAM! Idea Showcase?

This annual event began in 2021 as a way to:

  • Share creative and innovative projects, programs, resources, and practices with others;
  • Promote collaboration, networking, and collegiality among information providers; and
  • Provide a format in which individuals and organizations can learn from one another to strengthen the genealogy and family history community.
