MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL CAMPAIGN
It is time to send in your renewal for 2021! An envelope was sent out with your August newsletter. If you did not receive the envelope you can still renew either on this website under Membership or by mail to the address above. It is still only $15.00 ($16.00 if you renew online using PayPal) to renew at this time for the 2021 year. Effective 2022 our dues will increase to $25.00 ($27.00 if you renew online using PayPal)
Please do not send dues of $15/$16 past the 2021 year, your funds will be returned to you as an incorrect amount.
Your membership dues allows us to continue our programs with excellent speakers and to provide members with a quarterly newsletter. Please renew your membership today!
NEW YORK STATE LIBRARY
The New York State Library is temporarily closed.
When it reopens, the New York State Library will most likely be open Monday-Friday with restrictions. Plan your research accordingly.
Are You Moving?
If you are changing your address please let us know by emailing us at email@example.com. Our newsletter, sent by bulk mail, will not be forwarded by the US Postal Service, so you must notify us directly.
We are excited to bring you our meetings, including speaker presentations, live, on Zoom.
You can get a free Zoom account at Zoom.com.
Speakers generally present for about an hour preceded by some announcements and “taking care of business” which generally lasts 10 – 15 minutes. Members of CDGS always get first chance at registering for the meetings, but there is usually some room left over so on the 16th of the month we open to allow non-members to register for the meeting. When the Colonie Town Library re-opens for meetings we will post in-person meeting information.
We have some great presentations coming up……. Take a look at the Meetings & Events tab for more information. But here is a sneak peek at some upcoming topics:
