Annual Conference shortened by one day; hotel room blocks now open

October 16, 2017
At a recent meeting, the Annual Conference Program Committee decided to shorten the length of the 2018 Annual Conference session by one day. It is now set for June 3-5, 2018, at the Jekyll Island Convention Center on Jekyll Island.

“After last year, some delegates expressed concern over the cost of hotel rooms and meals on the island,” said Dr. Jay Harris, Conference secretary. “We listened and have therefore modified our schedule so that delegates may choose to head home on Tuesday if they want.”

The 2018 Annual Conference session will begin at 6:30 p.m. Sunday evening, June 3, and conclude at 4 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, June 5. Since the conference was shortened by one day, if delegates choose to leave after the session ends Tuesday they will only have to pay for two nights in a hotel instead of the typical three or four nights.

“We are excited to be returning to Jekyll and the wonderful surroundings and facilities this location offers us,” Dr. Harris said. “Bishop Bryan and the Conference Program Committee have already begun to plan a conference that will engage us in God’s mission. The Local Arrangements Coordinator, Mr. Bill Allen, and the marvelous army of volunteers that Bill led in 2017 are gearing up again to host us.”

Hotel room blocks are now open. Special South Georgia Conference rates have been negotiated at hotels on Jekyll Island and at Epworth By The Sea on St. Simons Island. Click here to view a list of hotels.
