This event is only for our World Deluxe members and will give you a chance to hear from our senior management team, hear questions from your fellow members and find out what is in store for the rest of the year.

This is an exclusive opportunity to shape the direction of Ancestry.com and be heard. Have a burning question you want answered? Submit it ahead of time when you register.

We look forward to an open dialogue and hearing your thoughts.
Register now.

DearANKT,
Great. The “first ever” town hall meeting features some top execs, and is described on the registration site as follows:


“We will share important news about your membership and outline the direction for the remainder of 2009, including key web site and collections projects. We will also take time to address questions from you, our loyal members (please enter any questions you have in the registration form below). This is an exclusive opportunity to learn what Ancestry.com has in the works, ask your questions, and hear what’s on the mind of other members.”

The Ancestry.com team members slated to attend the Town Hall include the same top execs the "secret blogger day" attendees met in January 2009.
  • Timothy P. Sullivan, CEO The Generations Network (TGN)
  • Andrew Wait, TGN Senior Vice President, General Manager of Family History
  • Gary Gibb, TGN Vice President, U.S. Content
  • Eric Shoup, TGN Vice President, Product

Note that your questions must be submitted in advance.

I think it is wonderful that the TGN is setting this up. One thing -- I thought a town meeting meant the floor was open to Q & A.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
