Philly 2009: Local groups to receive low daily rate

If you are a member of a local Philadelphia metro area synagogue or Jewish organization, you and others can receive a deeply discounted daily registration rate. The deadline is July 15, so contact your synagogue or organization ASAP.

The normal daily attendance rate is $75, but groups can receive the rate of $40 per person.

The conference, which runs August 2-7 at the Sheraton City Center, will offer more than 200 presentations, programs and workshops on all aspects of Jewish family history research by international experts.

According to the Philadelphia Jewish Exponent article:

Groups of 20 should assign a liaison to collect the names and money by July 15. First, visit the conference Web site (www.philly2009.org) to review program offerings, and then select a day.

Group members may then come to the Sheraton at any time on their selected day and enjoy full access to all programs that do not require an additional fee.
This is a great price and, to my knowledge, this is the first time such a group rate has ever been offered at any previous year of the annual event. To contact co-chair David Mink about this offer, see the Exponent article here.

This year is the 29th edition, hosted by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Philadelphia and co-sponsored by the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies.

The 30th conference will be hosted by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles in July 2010.
