Future SLIG Dates and Format

SLIG recently moved to a new two-week format designed to better meet the advanced educational needs of the genealogical community:

  • SLIG will be held in the second week of January, in a familiar format – opening with a welcome reception on Sunday and closing with the completion banquet on Friday – with an emphasis on high-intermediate to advanced genealogical education.
  • It will be followed on Saturday by SLIG Tech Day – an opportunity to advance your genealogy-related technical skills through classes, mini-labs, and workshops. 
  • The annual SLIG Colloquium – an invitational forum for thought leaders of the industry to discuss topics and challenges of the day – will continue to be held on the Saturday following SLIG.
  • The New SLIG Academy for Professionals will begin on the following Monday. This new program will focus on professional development topics not offered at SLIG or elsewhere in a week-long, in-depth format. It will open with a special event to commemorate the life and legacy of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., and close with a networking luncheon.

All programs will be held at the Hilton Salt Lake City Center.
