What to expect as we prepare for AC24
Planning is underway for the 2024 Upper New York Annual Conference session, to be held May 30-June 1 at the SRC Arena, on the campus of Onondaga Community College in Syracuse.
Administrative team leaders met virtually last week to iron out details regarding the upcoming session. Participants included chairpersons from the Board of Pension and Health Benefits, Conference Finance and Administration, Commission on Equitable Compensation, Nominations, and Trustees working in conjunction with the Episcopal Office and the Communications Team Ministry.
Upper New York Annual Conference members can expect many things this year, including information rich reports in the 2024 Pre-Conference Workbook, informative Pre-Conference briefings, and focused podium presentations during Annual Conference.
The 2024 Pre-Conference Workbook will be available for publication no later than the first week of May. United Methodists of Upper New York will be notified of its availability in the Weekly Digest and through other Conference Communication channels.

Pre-Conference briefings will be held on Thursday, May 16 from 6:30-8 p.m. and on Saturday, May 18 from 10-11:30 a.m. These virtual briefings offer United Methodists of Upper New York who are registered for Annual Conference to listen to presentations and ask questions of the administrative team prior to gathering in-person later that month.
Members attending are expected to come prepared with a clear understanding of reports along with petitions and resolutions prior to gathering.
Registration for Annual Conference will open April 3. Click here to see registration costs. The theme this year is based on Philippians 3:13-14 with a forward mindset of claiming God’s future for us with hope and joy.
