Update from the Secretary of the Annual Conference Registering Attendance at Annual Conference June 4, 2020

The question is being raised, “If we can’t vote at annual conference, why bother going or registering my attendance?” The conference leadership is saddened that we cannot conduct annual conference in its traditional manner and the virtual solution is the best scenario that we can devise to allow us to hold annual conference. While it is true that there will be no votes, that does not mean that persons should simply just not tune in for the event. As a member of annual conference, laity or clergy, your participation, even if in a passive viewer mode, is important. Information will be shared that is important to each local church. It is also required that a roll be taken of those that are present for the event. We have decided that the best way to do this is to provide a post–annual conference online registration form. We realize that not everyone has an internet connection and have heard that some members are specifically going to a friend’s home or other location that does have internet access to view the annual conference. For those of you that are doing this, you have my thanks. You are taking your role as a member of annual conference seriously and are seeking to overcome the barriers that might prevent you from attending. Your church will be well served by your efforts. For persons in this situation, the online form can be accessed while you are still at the viewing site and your attendance can be noted. Multiple persons may register on just one form. So please pay attention to the concluding moments of the annual conference. The links will be onscreen and those, for whom we have an email address, will be receiving an email link to the registration form. If you have any questions about this matter, please contact Terry Goodman at (865) 690-4080 or via email at conferencesecretary@holston.org
