Reunion school is in session
These are exciting opportunities for planners to learn how to organize reunions. These workshops are ideal for beginners and experienced reunion planners looking for fresh, new ideas.
We add new workshops and events to Reunions magazine and this online list as soon as we learn about them. If you offer a workshop or event about reunion planning, email details to firstname.lastname@example.org. Listings are free to hosts, as a service for our readers.
Scheduled events are listed here in chronological order for those who have set dates. Then, there is a list of organizations who offer workshops but have not set dates, so you should contact them to ask about their plans for their next workshop; also remind them to notify us. Other good sources for workshops are genealogy societies and their conferences. Check society program plans and if you belong to a society, ask the program chairperson to arrange a reunion planning workshop or program.
The following list is for family reunion workshops, unless designated otherwise.
Many of these events are offered free though require pre-registration and do not accommodate walk ins.
Mahalia Simmons, Huger, South Carolina, Gant Family Reunion planner, says that "in every dilemma I have faced with my reunion you have helped. I’ve received your magazine for 10 years and I look forward to each issue. I haven't had a chance to go to any workshops ... Reunions magazine is a reunion workshop in itself."

Attendees at the 2009 Lake County Reunion Workshop Experience
"The Lake County Family Reunion Workshop was an excellent way for family reunion planners to learn about Lake County. I live in Illinois but never knew what the Lake County area offered. I walked away more knowledgeable of the area. I would encourage anyone involved with their family reunion to participate in these workshops." - Helen Denham, Riverdale, Illinois
