Your "Journey of Discovery" in May 2019 will officially begin on Thursday, 6 December 2018 when conference registration opens at 10 a.m. Eastern time.
Although the National Genealogical Society (NGS) originally announced 1 December as the opening date for registration, it was necessary to postpone that date due to the launching of the NGS's new website.
According to an NGS press release, the decision was made so they could "provide full staff and technology support on Opening Day. This is the first conference registration event on our new website, and we want the registration process to go smoothly. We ask for your patience and understanding as we do further testing."
Now that you have additional time before you can sign up, what can you do to get ready?
- If you are an NGS member visiting the new website for the first time, be sure to use these extra days to reset your password, log in, and become familiar with the redesigned layout. You can use your previous password as long as you follow the easy steps to reset it (or you can create a new one).
- If you are not a member of NGS, check out the benefits of membership on the website and follow the directions to create a guest profile prior to registration day. That will speed up the process for you when you are ready to sign up.
- Have you got your registration booklet? The extra days now give you time to plan out your conference week and decide which extra seminars, workshops, luncheons, dinners, and other special events you'd like to attend.
