    2017 Pre-Conference Briefing to be produced via video this year

    March 30, 2017 / By UNY Communications

    In years prior, leading up to the Annual Conference, Pre-Conference Briefings were held across the UNY area to provide information about the budget, pensions and benefits, resolutions, constitutional amendments, and other details to help you feel prepared for Annual Conference.

    This year, we have successfully developed a narrative budget and conducted listening sessions across the UNY Conference to discuss the budget. You can review and/or download our 2018 narrative budget booklet here.

    Budget has always been the primary topic of the Pre-Conference Briefings. Because travel was required for the listening sessions, which centered on the budget, we decided not to have people travel again.

    This year, we are producing a Pre-Conference Briefing video that will be released in early May. This video will provide all of the same information you would have received in the “live” briefings, but you can watch it in the convenience of your home or church, on your own, in small groups, or as a congregation.

    Keep watching the UNY Conference news platforms to find out when the video is released.

    With more than 144,000 members, the Upper New York Annual (Regional) Conference of The United Methodist Church comprises 865 local churches and 91 new faith communities in 12 districts, covering 48,000 square miles in 49 of the 62 counties in New York state. Our mission is to “live the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to be God’s love with our neighbors in all places."
