New Mexico Annual Conference – October 16-17, 2020 – Virtual Conference
Annual Conference 2020 will be held virtually via the Zoom Webinar platform, which is different from a Zoom Meeting that more of us are familiar with. All registration will be online. In order to register and vote, each delegate will need an email address unique to them.
Who can register?
Only clergy who are members of the NMAC (see below for explanation of eligible clergy**) and lay delegates may register. If a church’s lay delegate(s) have changed, please notify the Conference office, email@example.com, to update your delegate information. Delegates not on our master list will not be allowed to register. Alternate lay delegates, clergy spouses, and guests will be able to view the livestream of the conference but will not be allowed to register for the webinar. If a church elected lay delegate is not able to attend, the alternate delegate shall contact the Conference Secretary, Roselie Johnston, firstname.lastname@example.org, in writing to request a registration link.
**Clergy designations: Elders and Deacons in full connection to the NMAC, Retired Elders and Deacons from the NMAC, Associate Members, Retired Associate Members, full or part-time Local Pastors under appointment.
