You may order meal tickets, purchase Annual Conference t-shirts, 2010 Journals and Clergy Directories; and make reservations for childcare through online Express Registration. The deadline for Express Registration is May 19, 2010.
Please note online Express Registration (click orange button above) is the easiest way to take needed registration action is When you pre-register by May 19, 2010, you will receive your meal tickets and corrected name badge in the mail prior to Annual Conference. Therefore, all you have to do is go to the Bag Pickup Table and receive your bag. That bag will have your plastic name badge holder and other Conference materials. With Express Registration, there are no lines and no waiting at the opening of Annual Conference!
However, if you miss the Express Registration deadline, please know the registration team will be available to assist you during Annual Conference. Team members will be available to assist people who need to be added to the Annual Conference membership list – such as an alternate lay member replacing his or her charge’s lay member. There will also be task specific tables where you can purchase meal tickets and t-shirts (while supplies last). Look for the signs above each registration table to guide you.
The registration team will be available:
The membership (clergy and lay) of the North Alabama Annual Conference is determined by the 2008 United Methodist Book of Discipline and the North Alabama Conference Call to Mission and Ministry. It is the responsibility of each local congregation to properly report their lay member(s) through the charge conference reporting process each fall.
Express Registration will not add a new person to the Annual Conference membership. Reserve members taking the place of an Annual Conference member must follow the procedure explained on page 113 of the PreConference book (Journal vol. 1). Local churches who did not report Lay Member to Annual Conference names during the fall should contact their District office.
