    Do you ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes in preparation for the Upper New York Annual Conference Session each year? Many hours and many hands are involved in the process of each and every detail of planning. Every Ministry Area plays an important part, along with the help of many volunteers before and during the Session.

    Our next blog series will dive deep into the ins and outs, beginning with logistics*, and ending with a post Annual Conference wrap-up (which will include a special video!). Here’s a list of what you can look forward to leading up to the 2017 Annual Conference Session in the coming weeks:

    • Logistics
    • Printed Materials
    • AV/Technology
    • Worship
    • Communications OnSite
    • Post Annual Conference Wrap-Up

    *Did you know, the Annual Conference planning begins before the current Conference is even finished? Learn more next week in our first blog post of the series!
