Our leadership team is already working on our next annual meeting. To be good stewards, we anticipate conducting our next meeting just prior to the special General Conference in February 2019 in St. Louis. We anticipate staying one extra day to work on how we all can best communicate what arises from this special meeting of The United Methodist Church’s worldwide delegates. For planning purposes, the anticipated dates are Feb. 21-22, 2019, and then a half day on Feb. 27.
We’ll share more details as they are developed.
