COVID-19: Conference Updates
10 March 2020
The National Genealogical Society (NGS) is closely monitoring health and safety concerns regarding COVID-19. We are following recommendations by local and federal government agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The health and safety of our members, attendees, and employees are our priority and will guide our decisions.
Absent mandated federal travel restrictions and/or local, state, or regional decisions to close venues, NGS has not canceled the 2020 Family History Conference scheduled for 20-23 May 2020, nor any of our related pre-conference events.
If that should change, speakers, exhibitors, and registrants will be notified, and all information will be posted here on the conference website at https://conference.
ngsgenealogy.org/. In addition, if there are any changes to event schedules, we will provide information about options that may be available and/or other specific details.
We will work with our venues to check that they maintain appropriate sanitary, health, and safety measures and we encourage attendees to follow guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.
Our cancellation policy remains in place for your benefit at this time. Please check back here frequently for any updates on the event, including any cancellation policy changes.
