Important! Individual Registration is Required: All delegates and visitors must register individually. Do not rely on your church’s leadership registering for you. You must register yourself.
In-person attendance, current COVID precautions: All attendees must show proof of vaccination (including boosters, if eligible) to be maskless indoors. Otherwise, masks are required indoors.
Online delegates: Please attend online if you are not fully vaccinated, immunocompromised, or uncomfortable attending in person. We will ensure that you have everything you need to participate successfully, including online training held in advance. A Help desk will also be operational during the annual convention to assist you.
Guests and visitors: This year’s convention will be open to guests and visitors. Nonetheless, we recommend that those who are not delegates watch from the comfort of their own homes. Registration is not required to watch online.
Registration Deadline is October 7, 2022
This year we are trialing the use of electronic voting for both in-person and online attendees. Delegates attending in person are asked to bring their mobile devices with internet access — Smartphones, netbooks etc. — with them to vote on. The convention registration form includes a question about this to determine what additional resources, if any, we will need to make available at convention to ensure everyone has timely access to a device in order to vote.
Details on reserving your hotel room if you are attending in-person and require accommodation are available at the link below.
