Their interests, experience and abilities in the tasks before them will make the PMC a "must-see" event that is worth our members' time and treasure. We're fortunate to welcome them to the task!"
As PMC Co-Coordinators, Henry and Lemay will be responsible for producing the Professional Management Conference from concept through completion. Their leadership, oversight, and coordination of the conference will anchor the association’s educational offerings and provide interaction and networking for professional genealogists. Their insights as professional genealogists and members of APG paired with their conference planning experience will pave the way for successful Professional Management Conferences.
