The Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) 2011 Conference is in Springfield, Illinois from September 7th to 10th, 2011. I am an "Official blogger" for the Conference, so I will be posting information about it from time to time.
Here is the FGS Social Media Policy for the 2011 Conference:
July 6, 2011 – Austin, TX. The Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) announces a new social media policy which will be in effect at its upcoming annual conference, Pathways to the Heartland, to be held in Springfield, Illinois, September 7-10, 2011.
FGS has developed a comprehensive social media policy for use by its Official Bloggers as well as all conference attendees. This policy seeks to balance the needs of social media users to report on the FGS 2011 conference and the needs of conference attendees for a productive learning environment, while at the same time protecting the intellectual property rights of FGS and its speakers.
