All registrations for annual conference will be online. Your registration is not considered complete until payment has been received. (If paying by check, the deadline for payment is May 18). There are limited single rooms available so you are encouraged to register with a roommate. If you register for a double room and do not designate a roommate one will be assigned. If you are planning to commute you also need to register online for a name tag. A commuter meal package can be purchased online for $175.
 
NEW THIS YEAR:  "Pre-Conference Workshops" from 1 - 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 30, at Trinity UMC, Hummelstown.  If you are planning to attend these workshops, you must register when registering for Annual Conference. There is a fee of $25 per person. If you plan to stay at the Hershey Lodge Wednesday evening, be sure to add the extra night lodging on your registration.

If you are not attending Annual Conference, you can still register for the Pre-Conference workshops.  Please pass this on to your church staff and volunteers as everyone is invited to these educational experiences.
