Genealogists who are members of our member society's often ask "I've been asked to help out with (name office or committee here). What does that involve?"
For the answer to many of those questions, please visit the Federation of Genealogical Societies web site. They have a series of short white papers called the Society Strategy Series. While several are dated, most ot the duties and ideas are still relefant today.
This is a free download, by visiting their website, http://fgs.org, and select "Society Strategy Series" under Learn.
