SLIG Call for Ambassadors

The Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG) is looking for ambassadors who have previously attended SLIG to promote the upcoming January 2020 institute. We hope that ambassadors will help us increase our reach to intermediate-advanced genealogists who want to elevate their education to new heights. We are accepting applications now and will notify selected ambassadors by June 5.

SLIG Ambassadors will be asked to:

  • Write 1 post per month before SLIG (blog, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)
  • Share 1 short post per day at SLIG (photo, tweet, tip you learned)
  • Write 1 post about your experience at SLIG the month after SLIG
  • If you are attending a regional/national genealogy conference, wear a SLIG Ambassador "Ask Me" pin and be willing to answer others' questions.
SLIG Ambassadors will be given $100 off tuition (may be combined with UGA member discount).

To apply, click here: SLIG 2020 Ambassador Application

The application closes on May 25. Ambassadors will be notified by June 5.
