Welcome!

 In preparation for the 2015 General Conference (April 12-18) we are asking the Saints to:

  1. send quorum and committee reports (by March 15th) and district or branch reports (by March 25th) to conference managers
  2. contribute to the Delegate Travel Fund (all size donations welcome). Seven delegates have obtained Visas, with another six waiting on Visa approvals.
  3. consider hosting a foreign delegate in your home, for all or part of their time here. Notify Joy Muir to see how you can help!
  4. submit proposed resolutions to the conference secretary (by Saturday, April 4th). Secretary Smith is asking you consider using one of the two templates (whichever works best for you) to send these in on. They include:
    + Microsoft Word (type and save, then email)
    + PDF (print and hand write)(print and hand write, then mail in)
  5. pray for the conference and all who will be participating. Early in the week we will focus on reviewing the operational analysis report and work team observations – discussing and clarifying the mission and purpose of the JCRB, the organizational structure, the roles responsible to accomplish the work, and the organizational processes for accomplishing our work. The February Beacon will explain this in greater detail. Toward the end of the week pending resolutions will be considered.
  6. register early (registration is now open). On-site registration and/or picking up of notebooks and badges will begin the day prior to conference (2-4 pm), at the Gathering Place Conference Center. No fee is charged to attend this conference. A $10 donation is requested to cover the cost of conference notebooks, and free-will donations will be collected to cover the cost of the conference. Registration will also be open on Sunday, following lunch and daily during conference.

  7. Overnight Rooms (including bathing facilities) are available at the Conference Center on a first-come, first-served basis. Cost is $8 per person / per night if you provide your own bedding. If using Inn linens, cost is $10 per person / per night. Contact Barb Giertz to make reservations (manager@ConferenceOfBranches.org or 816-252-1457)
