Get involved with the conference-volunteer!

 Volunteers Needed!

 Once you get a chance to look at the syllabus and pick your sessions, you might see that you'll have some spare time during the conference. Please consider volunteering!

It takes many, many people to keep everything running smoothly during such a large conference, and volunteering is a fun way to get to know other genealogists.

Shifts are available at various times from Monday–Saturday. Registration workers, Ask Me hosts , room monitors, and Youth Camp registration (Saturday, 7:45 a.m.–8:45 a.m.) are all needed.

Registration volunteer
Check in pre-registered attendees, verify, and distribute registration materials.

Ask Me host volunteers
Stationed at key points around the conference area to answer attendee questions about room locations, directions to lecture rooms and restrooms, lecture times, and other general queries.

Room monitors
Assist with readying lecture room, monitor admissions, help speaker or attendees if necessary, and obtain room count.

Anyone wishing to volunteer, please contact Volunteer Chair, Lynne Bogner,  at Please add NGS REGISTRANT VOLUNTEER in the subject line. In the message, let Lynne know what day and time you are available to help. If you're not sure and need more information, contact Lynne.

NGS and the Local Host Societies thank all our wonderful volunteers. We couldn't have a conference without you.
