Presbytery Meeting Registration

Registration is required for the May 11, 2021 meeting of Salem Presbytery. You will find the link to register below. Please read this information carefully.

Special note to clergy and CREs serving churches, and to clerks of Session: please make sure the ruling elder commissioner(s) elected by your Session for this meeting have access to the registration link. Only these elected elders should register as "Elder Commissioner elected for this Meeting." All other ordained Ruling Elders (who are not elected as a commissioner for this meeting) should register as guests. 

This meeting will be conducted on the ZOOM platform. It is preferred that participants use a computer or tablet for this meeting. The ZOOM client software should be downloaded (free of charge) on your device prior to May 11. Download instructions may be found HERE.

After your registration is completed and submitted electronically, you will receive an email from "the Presbytery" and the Stated Clerk, David Vaughan, on or around May 9. That email will contain the ZOOM credentials for the meeting. (Be sure to keep an eye on your spam/junk folder in case that email lands there.) You will be asked to save that email in a safe place so that you can access it quickly on the morning of the Presbytery meeting.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to the Stated Clerk through the link below.

The Presbytery officers and staff send many good wishes and prayers for peace, good health, and comfort. We are looking forward to "seeing" you soon!
