Welcome to the Southern New England Conference Annual Meeting!
PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE EMAIL, even if you have attended many Annual Meetings.  This year will be different in many ways.
The pandemic may keep us from gathering in person, but it is no impediment to the Holy Spirit.
Our Annual Meeting will be woven through with vibrant worship.  We will gather in small groups focused on shared ministry interests.  And we will hear from the Search Committee about their grace-filled journey as we welcome, affirm and celebrate our first Executive Conference Minister.

Come and be a part of this formative moment!
Business to be Conducted:
  • Adoption of Behavioral Covenant and Rules of Procedure for the meeting
  • Action on the Nomination of Directors and Officers
  • Action on the Nomination of the Executive Conference Minister
  • Release of Executive Conference Minister Search Committee
Our Worship Theme will be Jeremiah 31:31-34, The Days are Surely Coming…
Registration for the Annual Meeting is available on line here.  The deadline for those who wish to participate in the Networking Breakout Groups is September 18th.
If you are new to on-line meetings, do not fear!  You will have an opportunity to attend a practice Zoom session, and technical help will be available. It is possible to attend a Zoom meeting by computer, tablet or smartphone, or to listen in by dialing in on any kind of phone.
Zoom Practice Sessions will be held three times in the week prior to the meeting.  You must register for a practice session in order to receive the Zoom link to attend it.  Please register here.
In response to much feedback about our commitment to environmental justice, Delegate Materials will be distributed electronically this year.  There will be no automatic paper mailing of materials to any church or registrant. Those who need paper materials are invited to request them when they register – see the Accessibility section of the Registration form.  In order to receive paper materials, you must register and request them no later than September 15th.
A Speakout is a 60-second opportunity for a delegate to address the Annual Meeting on a topic of their choiceAs an adaptation to our remote format, Speakout opportunities will be assigned by lottery, and all Speakouts must be recorded and submitted in advance.  More information may be found here.
Further information and delegate materials are at the website here.  Additional materials will be added in the coming weeks.
We hope to see you on the 26th!
