The following is from FamilySearch.

Story@Home 2012 Conference on Temple Square, March 9-10

Dear Family History Consultants and Center Directors,

Many of you have inquired about the upcoming Story@Home 2012 conference on Temple Square in Salt Lake City on March 9-10. This first-ever event is sponsored by CherishBound and hosted by FamilySearch. The conference will focus on the power of stories in family history and includes engaging presentations, hands-on workshops, and a special evening event.

“No matter how you tell your stories—through your family history, at your child’s bedside, on your blog, or from a stage—your stories matter.” That’s the message of the Story@Home 2012 conference.

Family History Consultants, Center Directors and their families can attend the full two-day event at the discounted price of $59 per person. To get the discount, use the promo code Family2012 during the registration checkout process. (You will register at the CherishBound online store before entering the code.)
Discount Code: Family2012
The goal of the two-day conference is to help attendees connect their families through stories.
Stories about ancestors capture and engage family and friends. The Story@Home conference aims to help you share those stories. Whether you’re just starting your family history or already know a lot of the leaves and branches on your family tree, a compelling account of your ancestors' life experiences and character traits will help you share their legacy.
A variety of fun and informative activities will be offered:
Enjoy popular presenters, award-winning storytellers, and recognized experts.
Attend hands-on workshops.
Record one of your own family history stories.
Learn how to gather, record, share, and publish your personal and family history.
Discover how to weave family history into your stories.
Start a blog or get tips on other online social media.
Social media is a big part of the conference and is a perfect connection to storytelling and family history. Your Homebased Mom blogger Leigh Anne observes that blogging “has become a record of our family history. The history we are making right now…blogging was just a natural extension of that love for preserving our family’s history—another way to record and tell our family’s story.”
Want to put your own storytelling skills to the test? Then the StorySlam concert is for you. The StorySlam gives attendees a chance to showcase their stories and new skills through an "improv" storytelling contest. Think of it as karaoke for stories. It's fun, fast, and it’s audience participation to the max. 
The evening will be capped by selected performances from conference presenters.
