The 2009 APG Professional Management Conference Program on Tuesday, September 2, includes:

* Writing Professionally—A Two Hour Workshop, by Thomas W. Jones, PhD., CG, CGL, FASG

* Solving Mysteries for Money: the Forensic Genealogist and Private Investigator, by Mary Ann Boyle, Ph.D., CG

* The Bachelor: Reconstructing a Solitary Life Using Obscure & Far-Flung Records, by Mary Penner

* Talking to the World, by Sherry Irvine, CG

* Elements of a Good Client Agreement, by Richard Camaur, JD, CG

* The Genealogy Consumer: Who Pays for Professional Research? by Natasha Crain

* Publish! And Supplement Your Income, by Desmond Walls Allen

* Bull’s-eye! Planning and Delivering a Winning Marketing Campaign, by Heather Henderson

* Get Paid For Your Passion: Becoming a Professional Genealogist, by Elissa Scalise Powell, CG

There are two tracks - the Boyle, Penner, Irvine, Camaur and Crain talks are in one track, the Jones, Allen, Henderson and Powell talks are in the second track.

Each of these lectures sound intriguing, don't they? I am not attending the PMC, but am attending the FGS Conference which has classes on this day in many tracks. It's impossible to do it all!
