Call for Papers Details

PMC offers lectures that encourage attendees to improve both their genealogical and business skills. Lecture topics should challenge genealogical professionals to think outside the box, help professionals evaluate their current business, and encourage professionals to meet the demands of the twenty-first century client.

Lectures must be new, original, and on topics relevant to professional genealogists, but do not need to be specifically genealogical. The theme for the 2013 PMC is “Marketing and Business Strategies” and we welcome proposals on topics such as, but not limited to: the fours P's of marketing (product, pricing, promotion, placement), building your brand, lecturing for success, driving traffic to your website, professional networking, keeping clients happy, converting prospects into clients, etc. Presentations from other professional fields on topics that would benefit professional genealogists will be considered such as tax deductions for genealogists, benefits of incorporating versus remaining a sole proprietorship, grants for genealogical research, etc. Lectures will be one hour, including questions; however, those offering a 2–3 hour interactive workshop are also encouraged to submit proposals.

Proposals should be submitted electronically to either in Microsoft Word or PDF format and should include the following:
Name, address, telephone, fax, and e-mail address of speaker
Title of the presentation
Detailed description of the presentation
Short one-sentence summary for the program brochure
