We’re Here For You!
Although the pandemic is very much still in our midst, I’d like to remind our PGSA members that we are available virtually, providing the services and publications that provide ongoing value for your PGSA membership dollar. Those important member benefits include:
- Providing assistance with your individual research requests,
- complementary webinars that expand your knowledge of all things Polish (genealogy data sources & methods, Polish history, and socioculture)
- a wide range of publications available in our online Bookstore
- our quarterly journal, Rodziny
- our monthly electronic newsletter, the Notebook (sign-up required).
In early September, the PGSA Board sent out a survey to all members (via SurveyMonkey) asking for member feedback regarding satisfaction with our programs and services. We received many excellent suggestions from the survey responses, which will help shape the Board’s programmatic road map for 2021 and beyond. A total of 400 responses were received. With a total membership of 1,500+ members spread across 40 different States and 11 international countries, this was an excellent response from a broad cross-section of our membership, and on behalf of the Board and myself, I’d like to say Thank You (!) to each member who took the time to respond.
We are also in the process of re-vitalizing our website, and improving the organization and accessibility of our website’s rich content for members.
Last but not least, it is not yet clear if it will be possible to have an in-person Conference in September 2021. However, we have begun the planning for a Conference and developing several options, including a virtual conference format which may enable more members to participate. More to come on this, so please stay tuned for updates.
In the meantime, stay safe, and stay healthy,
Chet Szerlag President, PGSA
