If you have not yet registered for the 37th General Assembly, June 20-23 at Fair Oaks Presbyterian Church in Sacramento, don’t delay—registration fees double on June 1.
Why the increase in fees? Think of it as our encouragement to “live considerately with one another.” In years past, as many as 35 percent of our attendees registered after June 1—which caused unnecessary stress for the host church planning team (most of whom were volunteers). Raising registration fees in June has helped our local planning teams significantly, and less than 8 percent registered after June 1 last year. Let’s try to reduce that figure even further this year!
In other Assembly related news, we are in the process of final editing of the reports for the Commissioner’s Handbook. Reports will be posted at www.epc.org/ga2017documents when they are available.
If you are a Ruling Elder planning to attend, be sure to complete the two-part registration process. Step one is to ensure that your Clerk of Session has completed and submitted the Commissioner Certification Form. For you to vote at the Assembly, we need certification that your Session has elected you as a Commissioner. Also, be sure you or someone responsible for registering your group has completed the online registration process at http://tinyurl.com/ga2017register.
We look forward to seeing you in Sacramento!
