The Countdown Has Begun: Just 83 Days to ACS

March 25, 2010

The 162nd Annual Conference Session will open just 83 days from now, on Wednesday, June 16, at the Sacramento Convention Center. As last year, clergy and laity will gather together in the morning for the opening plenary session and worship.

The preliminary schedule is available to download now. Just go to the California-Nevada Annual Conference website at and click on "Annual Conference Session" – which is the first item under "Quick Links" on the right side of the page. That will take you to the page where all information related to ACS can be accessed.
Registration is open now!
On the Home Page at, just click on the "Registrations" tab on the main navigation bar, then click on the link for either Clergy Registration or Laity Registration. Or click on "Annual Conference Session" under "Quick Links" (as noted above).
Multiple-person registration is now an option
This year, you may register more than one person without exiting the registration program – however, all must be either clergy or laity. You will not be able to register clergy and laity on the same registration because the registration types, used to assign voting status and seating, differ for each.
You will receive a confirmation message when you click on "Submit" and, a moment or two later, a confirmation email. The confirmation email includes a link that allows you to return to your registration and make corrections, if needed. You may print from both places.
Register and pay for childcare on line
This year, too, you may register and pay for childcare on line. You will receive a prompt with your registration confirmation email, which includes a link to online registration for childcare.
Order, pay for DVD set on line
When registering you also will have the option of ordering the two-DVD set of the workshop conducted at South Reno UMC in March by the keynote speaker at ACS, Bishop Robert Schnase – and you may pay for the DVD on line.
Please note, however, that once you submit your registration you will not be able to change or cancel your order.
Housing registration
We will provide a list of housing options on the Annual Conference Session page. This year the Hyatt will be the only hotel for which you will be able to register on line through the Conference website; it is the only hotel offering a special rate for ACS attendees this year.
The deadline to register for Annual Conference Session is May 23.
The deadline to sign up for childcare is June 1 (and space is limited).
