Subject: [CASANDIE] Jamboree Update - Southern California GenealogicalSociety
Date: Wed, 3 Jun 2009 16:32:28 -0700

It's hard to believe that it's already June 3 and that Jamboree is
just about three weeks away. There are so many Jamboree updates
that I'm going to break this month's update into two emails -
Jamboree and everything else that is going on at SCGS.

You can find links to all Jamboree mentions at our blog at . If you have not yet signed up
to get email updates for Jamboree activities, please, please do so.
It's the very best way to stay updated on all of the last-minute
details, such as parking, schedule changes, special announcements,

We are so glad that many of this year's sessions are going to be
audio recorded and available on CD. You can purchase the CDs at
Jamboree or later through the website of JAMB Tapes. We will have a
link on the SCGS website after Jamboree

Joining Jamboree for the first time will be,,, and Save Their Story, LA as Subject,
and Uncle Ronnie's Pens. For an updated floor plan, click on the
"exhibitor" button on the Jamboree section of the SCGS website.

Calling all SCGS members - new members and long-time SCGS members
and even potential members - to help out at Jamboree! Jamboree is
more fun when you set aside a couple of hours to help. It's a great
way to get to know your fellow members and jump in both feet into
activities with your Society.

The more volunteers we have to share the work, the less time that
any one volunteer needs to be on duty. We want everyone to have a
good time, see the lectures they want, and have an opportunity to
contribute to the success of Jamboree.

The room monitor job is just the thing for volunteers who don't want
to commit to several hours of work. Pick the sessions you want to
attend. Sign up to be the room monitor for 2 or 3 or more of those
sessions. You'll be asked to hand out evaluation forms, collect them
after the session, straighten up chairs, ask people to move to the
front of the room, help people find empty seats. During the lecture,
you can sit back and enjoy the presentation.

To volunteer for any of these jobs, please send an email to
with a subject line of Jamboree Volunteer.
Please include your name and phone number so that we can get in
touch with you.
