Special Opportunity at SLIG

SLIG Mountains Transparent
Dear ICAPGen professional,
Enrollment for the Project Management course to be held in January 2020 at the SLIG Academy for Professionals is dangerously low. We are asking for our help – in the way of referrals or personal registrations to ensure that the course does not need to be cancelled.
Since the course outline and the faculty teaching the course are so amazing, we suspect the situation has to do with the “unknowns” – faculty not known or normally seen on the speaking circuit in our industry. They were purposely selected, however, because they are each working full-time in the industry using these skills successfully on a daily basis.
The following blog post introduces those faculty members and their important roles in the industry: Naturally, the information gleaned from this course will help anyone better manage genealogical projects, whether for personal work, client-work, a small business, or as a project manager in the corporate world.
We invite you or your friends to register for this course by midnight, Wed., Sept. 25th in order to receive a $76 credit to cover one guest ticket each to the commemorative breakfast and closing lunch – or to be used toward the purchase of SLIG swag if preferred. (This offer obviously applies only to this particular course.)
Once registered, please reach out to me at the email address below to arrange for the credit to be applied.
