Demographic data collection
Demographic information will be requested during registration. The general church requires us to report demographics for statistical purposes only. Reports drawn from the information will only be totals for each category and will not be linked to specific information about any lay or clergy members of annual conference (name, address, e-mail, etc.).
Your participation is optional but appreciated. Please provide information so that The United Methodist Church will have accurate information about all annual conferences.
If you need to change your registration, you can request a refund if you contact Gail Johnson (612-230-6125) prior to June 12. This includes cancellation, changing a meal, and housing changes. Refunds will be made by check. No refunds will be given for changes made June 12 or later.
