APG Professional Management Conference Syllabus for Sale

Are you interested in a career in professional genealogy? One of the best resources available in the field is the Professional Management Conference (PMC) hosted by the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG). If you missed the conference in January, then you can still benefit by purchasing the conference syllabus. APG is making the syllabus available as an electronic download for only $18. I have purchased the APG PMC syllabus every year for the last five years to enhance my own professional genealogy education.

The 120 page syllabus contains the speakers' handouts from all 16 sessions detailed below. You do not need to be a member of APG to purchase the syllabus, which is available on the APG website at
