August 1, 2015 GSHA-SC General Meeting Notification

Please join us at our next General Meeting on Saturday, August 1, 2015 for a discussion on the future of Genealogy groups

“Putting Youth in the Driver’s Seat to Preserve their Family Legacy:
A Discussion on Creating Changes in Genealogy Organizations”

Panel guests include Anthony Ray, Youth Representatives, Cynthia Liu, Webmaster and Social Media Technician, Paul Gomez, President and Moderator, 
and  Rita Vega-Acevedo, VP Programs and Education

What will it take for genealogy groups to survive aging members and the digital age?
The panel’s focus will be on the future of genealogy groups by promoting changes, such as recruiting younger members and incorporating social media. Cynthia Liu will discuss how the digital age has changed the way we communicate and how social media will drive recruitment and retention in the 21st century. Can social media entice the next generation to preserve their family legacy? Can or will genealogy organizations implement changes quickly enough?

This meeting requires audience participation. Hope to see you on August 1st.
