Are you looking to improve your genealogy business? 

Have you attended conferences and institutes and find yourself ready to take the leap from genealogy hobbyist to professional? 

Are you ready to connect with clients who are eager to work with you and pay professional rates?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions and are seriously considering becoming a professional, the APG Professional Management Conference is a MUST. While many genealogy conferences, webinars, and institutes focus on research and methodology, the Professional Management Conference teaches genealogy professionals how to more effectively run their businesses. Classes cover a wide range of business topics taught by some of the most well-respected professionals in the industry. 

This year will feature sixteen virtual presentations and many opportunities to network with other professionals. Presentations will be offered over 3 different sessions: August 24-25, September 21-22, and October 19-20. Each session will be followed by on-demand access to presentation recordings for 10 days.
