Annual Conference

Each local congregation and many boards and agencies send delegates to Annual Conference. All clergy also vote at Annual Conference. At the 2019 Annual Conference, they will elect the delegates for General Conference 2020. Figure out who your delegates to Annual Conference are by speaking with your church leadership and then impress upon those delegates the importance of their voting for the 2020 members.
