Registration for the 40th General Assembly closes on Friday, September 4, at 12:00 p.m. (Eastern). The meeting is the first fully virtual General Assembly in the EPC’s history and will convene from the Office of the General Assembly in Orlando.
“We need to close registration on Friday so we know who should receive the Zoom meeting login credentials,” said Jeff Jeremiah, EPC Stated Clerk. “It also gives our office time to ensure that all Ruling Elder certification forms are in place for those who have registered.”
In addition, two virtual New Commissioners Orientation meetings are scheduled. The identical meetings will be held Tuesday, September 8, from 4:00-5:30 p.m. EDT, and Thursday, September 10, from 7:00-8:30 p.m. EDT.
“Normally, the day General Assembly convenes we hold an orientation for all of our first-time commissioners,” Jeremiah said. “As we thought about it, we realized that all of us will be ‘new Commissioners’ at this virtual General Assembly. This has been confirmed by the many questions my office has received in recent weeks about how we’re going to conduct this meeting.” Registered Commissioners will receive the link to the orientation meetings via email no later than Monday, September 7.
