RootsTech 2017

RootsTech, held in Salt Lake City Utah every February, is gearing up for it's 2017 Conference.
From Wednesday, the 8th to Saturday the 11th genealogists from all over the world will converge on the Salt Palace Convention Center.
From a great lineup of keynote speakers, hundreds of classes and workshops to evening events there is something for everyone no matter your skill level.

If you've followed my crazy experiences over the last couple of months, you will remember that I won tickets to attend the event this year. Not once but twice! Then just last week my application to be an Ambassador, which I had given up on, came through and I was put on the RootsTech 2017 Ambassador list!

So what is a RootsTech Ambassador? Someone who gets the word out about the opportunities for learning and fun over the course of the conference and once it starts, report on the happenings each day.

One of the duties of an Ambassador is to give away a free RootsTech 2017 Pass! 
This is a RootsTech plus Innovator Summit 2017 4-day pass ($299 value) which includes:

  • Innovator Summit
  • Over 200 classes
  • Keynotes
  • General Sessions
  • RootsTech classes
  • Getting Started classes
  • Expo Hall Evening events

So, if you would like to win a free pass to attend this amazing event you may enter by doing any of the following:

Each follow or like will be a separate entry, so the more you do, the more entries you will have.
Then, use any of these platforms to let me know you have entered.
Previous likes or follows count too, so be sure to mention them. 
The contest winner will be chosen on Wednesday, December 21st at noon! 

Good luck! I can't wait to see you at RootsTech 2017!
