The Tulsa Genealogical Society is staffed entirely
by volunteers. There are many opportunities available from active
involvement to just a few times per year. Volunteering for TGS aslo allows
you to meet and network with others who share your "passion" for genealogy.
Faithful and consistent attendance at regular
meetings is definitely supportive of the organization and to be commended.
However, by not serving on a committee, you are shortchanging yourself. You
are not getting the full benefit of your membership.
Serving on one (or more) of the various committees
within the society not only helps you increase your own personal knowledge,
it also helps increase your enjoyment of TGS. It gives you more of a sense
of "ownership" of the organization. Whether you can volunteer on a regular
basis or just on certain projects, we have a place for you! Some positions
may require some training and it will be provided to you.
