Convention 2020

UPDATE

SGGEE has announced plans to hold its 2020 convention in Portland, Oregon, USA. The dates are now finalized as is the hotel. Almost 200 of the Society's 600+ members live in the western U.S. and Canada, and we hope to see many of you at this convention!

The date is Friday-Sunday, July 31-Aug. 2 at the Monarch Hotel & Conference Center, 12566 S.E. 93rd Ave., Clackamas, OR. This is a short trip from the airport and downtown Portland. The convention room rate is $149 USD per night. You can make your reservation online using this direct booking link: https://tinyurl.com/yxbx6m3b. Or call (800-492-8700) or go online (www.monarchhotel.cc) and use the group code SGGEE to book your room.

We are working to offer additional genealogy opportunities around the convention. Consider coming a day early or staying an extra day to explore local resources. Bill Tucholke, our convention chair, welcomes your suggestions for programs and speakers. Send all comments or questions to convention-sggee@googlegroups.com. Watch this space for details as they are confirmed.
