The MGS Council is the governing body of the Manitoba Genealogical Society. The Council is made up of the Executive Board, the Standing Committees, Advisory Committees and representatives from the MGS Branches as identified below. The Executive Board meets monthly to take care of MGS ongoing business, and the entire Council meets a minimum of three (3) times a year. MGS members are welcome to attend any meeting that the Executive or Council holds as a guest (observe or speak up), and any member just needs to ask to be included.
The Standing Committee Chairs welcome members to work on their committee. Different committees keep the MGS Resource Library open on Tuesday (Library Committee), Wednesday (Project Committee) and Thursday (Research Committee). In addition, the Southeast and Winnipeg Branch opens the MGS Resource Library on select Saturdays. Each Standing Committee Chair welcomes MGS members to volunteer for various tasks within that portfolio. For example, the Generations Journal has an editor, proofreaders, and journal mailers; Publicity has someone posting on Social Media and so forth. Each Committee has many tasks and MGS volunteers are welcome to take a committee role to further the aims of our society. The Manitoba Genealogical Society runs solely on member volunteers.
