While it was back in June that MGC hosted a well-attended workshop at the Pinckney Community Public Library, the recent MGC Newsletter has been shared and perhaps you haven’t seen it – but the content of the workshop and a video are available. Your society will benefit from the knowledgeable ideas and content of this meeting! While a panel spoke to specific questions, the video shares the detail of the discussion with an engaged audience of society members from across the state. Societies are identified so that you can reach out to them for more information.
The newsletter can be found posted on the Michigan Genealogical Council’s website at https://mimgc.org/ where you can download the entire 22-page document with information about this June session and the questions that framed the discussion. While there isn’t a video of the morning session (due to technical challenges), the afternoon’s session IS available at the “Member Societies log in” area – the video is posted as are the handouts from Jen Baldwin (from July21, 2017) on “Engaging Your Long-Distance Members” and Amy Johnson Crow (from July 9, 2016) on “How to Keep Your Volunteers Happy, Helpful and Engaged”. Great resources for your society!
