This year, all members of Annual Conference will pick up their nametag from the Registration Team at Annual Conference. You will need your nametag to participate in the business of Annual Conference.
Picking up your nametag is all you have to do to officially register your attendance at Annual Conference. There are no attendance tabs to turn in at each session.
On Sunday, clergy and lay members can pick up their nametags and bags at the tables outside Bill Battle Coliseum. In case of rain, the tables will be moved to the rear of the coliseum floor.
Express registration will be open:
Members of the registration team will be available in the Theater Lobby throughout Annual Conference to distribute nametags to members who did not pick up their credentials on Sunday, to assist Reserve Members who need to pick up credentials to take the place of a lay member, to help those who need to be added to the Annual Conference membership role and to replace lost nametags.
All Annual Conference members should make sure their attendance is recorded. It is the duty of every member and all provisional members and local pastors of the annual conference to attend its sessions (¶602.8, 2012 Book of Discipline). Clergy members who cannot attend any business session of the Annual Conference must report by letter or e-mail to the Conference Secretary and copy your District Superintendent stating the reason for the absence.
