General Meetings

The Colorado Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists (CAPG) holds quarterly general meetings, which normally include a special presentation (speaker, tour, etc.). Visitors are welcomed.

Genealogy Café

Established in 2020, The Genealogy Café is a monthly member-exclusive event. It began with the goal of ensuring members had the opportunity to engage with each other more frequently. The CAPG quarterly meetings often focus on chapter business and presentations but don't offer an opportunity to network. It has evolved since our very first meetings in May 2020 when we restarted in October 2020. Topics are directed by membership and focus on business management, professional presentations, certification, accreditation, and of course networking. For more information, contact us.
