The FGS FORUM is edited by Sandra Hargeaves Luebking, FUGA, who does an excellent job of getting everything fit to print.  The Production Manager is Gary Mokotoff.   With the change to online publication of FORUM as a PDF has come use of more color and more graphics which enhances the product. 
In my Genealogy 2.0 column in this issue, I discussed "Why put your family tree online," "Where to put your family tree online,"  "Accuracy of Family Tree Data," "Is a Large, Combined Family Tree the Answer?" and "What Can We Do?"

Looks like some good topics to read. Although I don't subscribe, I'll look at a copy at NENGS. Christine Rose is a favorite speaker, and I think I know who Randy and Tom are. Plus, I've met Henry quite a few times. Thanks for posting this and I can't wait to take a peak.
