What's New for AC2022: 5 Things to Note About the North Georgia Annual Conference
5/23/2022
We will all be thrilled to return to in-person conferencing in North Georgia, but what else will be new in 2022? Here are a few things to expect at Annual Conference: 

#1 The Digital Handbook!
There will not be printed Annual Conference Handbooks in 2022. That means that before arriving in Athens you should plan to print the Handbook or download it to your digital device for reference. Find the digital handbook and important additions and corrections at https://www.ngumc.org/handbook-2022

#2 Start here: Onsite Registration is on the lower level of the Classic Center near the Atrium. 
Onsite registration will be located in Grand Hall 5. This is where you will check in to receive your name badge and voting card. Onsite registration is open
Wednesday, June 1, 4-6 pm
Thursday, June 2, 7:45 am-5 pm
Friday, June 3, 8 am-5 pm
Saturday, June 4, 8-10 am

Other notable new locations include:
  • Display Tables will be on the lower level of The Classic Center.
  • Clergy Executive Session will be in the Grand Hall.
  • The Service of Licensing, Commissioning, and Ordination will be in the Grand Hall. (CLERGY NOTE: Wear black robes and red stoles for this service)
#3 Guests, Visitors, and Friends Are Invited to Watch Online
As we do our best to mitigate COVID-19 risks at the 2022 Annual Conference, in-person attendance is limited to members of the Conference. Visitors and guests are invited to watch all sessions via live stream at www.ngumc.org/AC2022. Guests are invited to attend the Service of Remembrance (Friday, June 3, at 2 pm) and Service of Licensing, Commissioning, and Ordination (Saturday, June 4, at 10:30 am). 

#4 Are You New?
First time-attendees to the North Georgia Annual Conference can learn about the Classic Center buildings and the city of Athens at an orientation on Thursday, June 2, 11:00-11:30 am in Parthenon 1.
