Due Date – July 15th!
Dear SIG, RD, BOF, RG leader,
As you are probably aware by now, this year’s IAJGS Conference on Jewish Genealogy will be a “Virtual Conference”. The good news is that the conference Chairs have worked out a mechanism for SIG/RD/BOF/RG groups to meet in virtual meeting rooms during the conference period. Many of you already submitted applications but some of you notified us that you could not hold a session because you would not be able to travel to San Diego. Since physical attendance is no longer an issue, we are doing a re-set and providing all groups the opportunity to apply for a meeting session. Please read the rest of this letter carefully and submit the accompanying application form by July 15th.
The Virtual Conference will take place between Monday, August 10th and Thursday, August 13th between 10:00 AM and 7:30 PM, Eastern Daylight Time. In addition to SIG/RD/BOF/RG meetings, there will be live and pre-recorded sessions. Additional good news for your group is that we would like to offer the SIG/RD/BOF/RG meetings at no charge to attendees, so you could invite existing members and potential members who may not be interested in attending the full conference, but would like to meet with your group.
Attendees for any part of the conference, including the SIG/RD/BOF/RG meetings, must register for the conference. Registration for the full conference, which will include a variety of live and recorded sessions is $325. (By the way, the $250 early bird rate expires on Sunday, July 5th in case you have not registered and want to.)
By submitting your new request, you are agreeing to the following conditions:
Applications MUST be returned by July 15th, 2020 at the to(Earlier replies are very much appreciated.) If we do not get a response by July 15th, your group will not be scheduled.
Feel free to contact me at the same email address with any questions.
