WESTMINSTER, Colo., 1 February 2013—The Association of Professional Genealogists (APG®) is seeking qualified candidates for the managing editor position of its quarterly publication, Association of Professional Genealogists Quarterly (APGQ). APGQ has served the genealogy community since 1979 with staff-written and contributed articles covering all aspects of the profession.
The responsibility of the managing editor is the overall production of the APGQ, in keeping with the magazine’s high quality style and compelling content. This includes soliciting articles, working with contributing writers, determining the themes of each issue, and editing and approving all content. Interested parties should have extensive knowledge of copyright law and genealogy, as well as grammar and writing standards.
The current managing editor, Matthew Wright will continue to serve the publication as layout editor, a new position. “In the last few years, APGQ has grown both in scope and in outreach,” said Kenyatta D. Berry, president of APG. “It now makes sense to divide the responsibilities between two professionals. We’re excited about these changes and what they mean for the publication and our members.”
