The National Genealogical Society (NGS) announces the opening of Official Blogger and Social Media Press registration for the 2014 Family History Conference, which will be held 7–10 May 2014 in Richmond, Virginia.
In recognition of the important media role played by bloggers and social media press, NGS invites bloggers and social media writers to register at http://goo.gl/hSRnU5 for official Social Media Press designation for the NGS 2014 Family History Conference. Social Media Press includes bloggers, micro-bloggers, and other social media. Registration is now open and will close on 21 February 2014. NGS will notify accepted Social Media Press by 1 March 2014. For more information on the NGS Social Media Policy, see http://goo.gl/Sigp7P.
NGS recognizes the number of engaged and talented bloggers who regularly write about the release of new records, upcoming events, research methods, tools, software choices, and other items of interest to the genealogical community. The special designation, Social Media Press, by NGS for the 2014 Family History Conference recognizes the daily contributions social media writers make to keep the field of genealogy current, particularly with news that is not covered in the mainstream media.
Official Social Media Press will have a limited license to select and use the designation and logo Official Social Media Press or Official Blogger for reporting conference events from acceptance through post-conference reporting. Other benefits of official recognition will include receipt of a press kit upon conference check-in and access to the Press table located in the Wi-Fi area just outside the exhibit hall. In addition, NGS will award a $50 registration credit for the NGS 2015 Family History Conference to the five Social Media Press authors who provide the most comprehensive coverage at the 2014 conference. The award recipients will be announced before the end of May 2014.
