|Dear Colleague: |
Thank you for your interest in our Call for Presentations for the Southern California Genealogy Jamboree. Speakers who are interested in submitting presentations for the Jamboree Extension Webinar series will also submit presentations through this portal.
The 45th Annual Southern California Genealogy Jamboree will be held Friday through Sunday, June 6 through 8, 2014, at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel in Burbank, California. On Thursday, June 5, the Society will host its second DNA conference, "Family History and DNA: Genetic Genealogy in 2014."
Webinars are scheduled for the first Saturday and third Wednesday of each month. Saturday sessions are held at 10am Pacific time and Wednesday sessions begin at 6pm. Webinars are 90 minutes in length, including a 30-minute Q&A period.
Speakers are invited to submit presentations for up to 6 presentations.
Before submitting your responses, download and read the Call for Presentations. When we receive your signed response to the Call for Proposals as well as this submission, your submission process will be complete.
You may wish to review the questions on the submission questionnaire before you start the interview. You can find the document here.
Why do we use an online submission process?
1. Accuracy. You provide the information that we need to promote your lecture sessions, communicate with you, and ensure that we include the correct information in the syllabus, on our website, and in the program.
2. Efficiency. It's an effective way for us to gather complete, accurate information for all our speakers, efficiently track all our speakers' needs, and keep from bothering you for additional information.
3. It's green. It saves us from printing out sheets and sheets of information. Let's save a tree or two.
4. It's easy and fast. The first part of the questionnaire will collect your basic profile information -- contact info, background, experience, etc. After that, you will enter the information about your first proposal. The interview will end. If you have additional sessions to propose, just click on the link again and make another pass through the questionnaire. Don't worry -- you'll skip over all of the personal stuff on subsequent passes.
You are welcome to suspend the interview and come back to finish it later if you want. Within 24 hours of the time your submission is completed, a copy of your responses will be emailed to you for your records.
If you have questions at any time about the questionnaire or the procedures, please contact Jamboree Program Chair Vicki Hilb by email at SCGSJamboree@gmail.com.
