Annual Meeting 2019 will be held on April 5th – 6th
at the Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells.
This will be a combined meeting of all four Associations as well as the Conference Annual Meeting. This unusual format is in response to our hosting of General Synod in June of 2019.
The intention of holding combined conference and association meetings is to most efficiently transact the business of both entities of the church in this year of hosting General Synod. This really is only 1 meeting, as opposed to viewing it as two separate meetings on the same weekend. The vision is for church delegates to represent their church in the necessary work of both entities. Therefore, there will be one registration fee for the entire meeting, which will cover Friday evening and Saturday. (Note: Churches that regularly send delegates to the conference annual meeting will see their overall costs lower in 2019 than in 2018, due to the 2019 meeting only requiring one overnight stay, and fewer meals.)
The meeting registration fees will cover the meeting and meals. It will NOT include your hotel room.
Hotel rooms will need to be booked by each church. Here is information about the room rates that may be helpful in your budgeting for 2019.
- Double queen w/sofa - 6 per room $154.94 a night includes resort fee
- 2 bedroom deluxe - 7 per room $214.94 a night includes resort fee
- 3 bedroom deluxe - 13 per room $324.94 a night includes resort fee (One double queen and one 2-bedroom make up the three bedroom)
People can stay Friday night only. If people want to stay Saturday night, it is a two-night minimum either Friday and Saturday or Saturday and Sunday.
>> Please note that neither the Conference nor Associations are planning to provide childcare during the meetings. <<
Your congregation will receive further information as the meeting gets closer but we wanted you to have some information for your 2019 planning.
