Granted, lecturing and teaching require different mixes of preparation,
skill and style.? However, I agree with Elissa that one should think twice about
creating too many narrow-interest organizations, all competing for the same
volunteer time.? Maybe, we should be thinking more in terms of a somewhat
broader group of genealogical "educators" that brings different lecturers,
instructors, and maybe even some writers, together.? Just a thought

Many, many years ago there was a program for genealogy teachers. Anne Budd
and I believe Sandra Lubking were very involved in the program. It was under
the NGS umbrella, if I'm remembering correctly.
