First are the luncheons, banquets, and local host event offered in conjunction with the conference itself. These offer great opportunities to meet fellow genealogists. The luncheons enable you to hear top speakers and learn more about the sponsoring organizations. The banquets are a chance to celebrate another year of success with the organizations sponsoring them. The local host event, Sweets Home Chicago, gives you a chance to relax and listen to great jazz music while indulging your sweet tooth at the dessert buffet. How can you resist? We hope you will have the opportunity to attend at least one or two of these special events during the conference.
