Attending the FGS/AGS 2009 Conference but need a roommate?

Before each Conference, The Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) receives requests inquiring if there are other conference registrants looking for a roommate. It's a great way to share costs. The 2009 Conference is in Little Rock, Arkansas from September 2-5 and the local host is the Arkansas Genealogical Society.

FGS will provide contact information (via e-mail) to those seeking a possible roommate at one of the Little Rock conference hotels. Roberta (Bobbi) King, a FGS Board member from Colorado, is once again providing this free service.

Bobbi and FGS will not be doing the actual roommate matching; that contact and decision is up to the individuals seeking a roommate.

To be a part of this service, all you have to do is e-mail your request to Bobbi and provide details including your name, state/province, e-mail address, telephone number, and some details about the type of roommate you are seeking. This would include such things as smoker/non-smoker, late or early to bed and to rise, arrival and departure days, whether or not you have already booked a room, male or female roommate preference, and any other requirements or information you feel you should provide such as snorer, light sleeper, need room totally dark, has TV on or off most of the time, etc.

The information you provide will not be posted online. It will only be shared with others seeking a roommate. Once you make a match, please let Bobbi know so that she can remove your name from the list.
