Logo and upcoming 2017-2018 Season
Many members responded to the HGF logo survey. The results are clear: our membership wants a change in the logo style. Many of you made thoughtful comments and have very good ideas. However, as we looked in detail at the costs of creating a logo which could be used with a variety of print, material, and electronic media and of obtaining a license to use the logo with these different media, we determined this project stretched HGF’s 2017-18 budget. We are concerned the time and money spent on a logo project would interfere with our main priorities. The logo project is on hold for now.
We’re currently working on filling-out our speaker program and developing several special activities for this 60th Anniversary year including:
- Assembling a strong line-up of presentations highlighted by four national speakers with all-day meetings; an increase over last year.
- This October 20-22, Houston is hosting the Texas State Genealogy Society annual conference. HGF will have a table at the conference so we will need HGF members to help man the table. We’ll share more details as they become available from TxSGS. Mark your calendar for a fun and informative weekend.
- HGF celebrates our 60th anniversary this April. A special celebration deserves a special place so we’ve located a wonderful new venue and an exciting speaker for our anniversary meeting. More on this later.
Thanks everybody for participating. Watch the website for more information about upcoming plans.
