Elissa Scalise Powell, CG, CGL, is a familiar face in front of genealogy audiences around the country. For years, she has lectured for local and state genealogical societies, at regional conferences around the country, at national conferences for the National Genealogical Society and the Federation of Genealogical Societies, and at week-long institutes where she has coordinated courses at the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research and the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy. She is also co-owner and administrator of the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh and, of course, has presented two courses for the Virtual Institute (Professional Genealogy I and Professional Genealogy II).
With all of this experience under her belt, Elissa has converted her skills into attaining and maintaining the Certified Genealogical Lecturer credential from the Board for Certification of Genealogists.
Now she wants to share her breadth of knowledge with Virtual Institute students. Topics discussed include evaluating your readiness, developing topics, creating PowerPoint slides and handouts, marketing your lectures and courses, and doing webinars.
“The Fine Points of Making Your Point: Honing Your Lecturing Skills” will begin this Saturday, September 9, 2017. Registration will remain open until Friday, September 8.
