July 27, 2007

L. Fitzgerald Reist, Secretary of the 2008 General Conference, issued an alert today (July 27, 2007) after being informed that none of the petitions emailed to the General Conference were delivered.

“Anyone who submitted a petition via email prior to noon today, July 27, 2007, needs to resubmit,” he writes. “I have been assured that the email address is now functioning properly and I regret the inconvenience that this situation has caused.”

The address to email petitions to the 2008 General Conference is petitions@umpublishing.org/.

Reist says anyone who does not receive an acknowledgement of the receipt of a petition within three weeks should call the office of the Petitions Secretary, Rev. Gary Graves, at (270) 274-4590.
