John Hamrock of www.ancestor.ie has recently joined the Genealogical Speakers Guild. The Genealogical Speakers Guild was founded in 1991 to facilitate better communication between speakers and societies. Their on-line directory at www.genealogicalspeakersguild.org is one step toward that goal.
Whereas, the Guild recognizes and respects the prerogatives of existing organizations and societies in the field of genealogy whose missions are to serve societies, educate and protect genealogical consumers, certify professionals, and provide for an exchange of ideas in broadly based avocational, professional, and entrepreneurial activities related to genealogy, the Guild therefore directs its objectives to the following:
To provide a unified, effective voice to promote speakers' interests by providing a forum for the discussion of topics of concern to genealogical speakers.
To broaden the speaker base by identifying, educating and assisting promising speakers.
To raise professional lecture standards.
To aid speakers in understanding and fulfilling their obligations to program planners and to audiences.
The Genealogical Speakers Guild Directory will help you find speakers like John Hamrock you are seeking.
