Annual Conference registration fees to remain the same for next year




Basic costs for the 2016 Annual Conference of the Church of the Brethren, to be held in Greensboro, N.C., have been shared by the Conference Office. “Program and Arrangements Committee met and decided to make no increases in registration costs for delegates or non-delegates,” reported Conference director Chris Douglas.

The early delegate registration fee will remain at $285. Early registration for non-delegate adult participants will remain at $105.

In terms of housing costs, in Greensboro the convention center and the hotel are all in one building and so there will be only one Annual Conference hotel, the Sheraton. Douglas said, “Our hotel rate is $108 plus 12.75 percent tax which makes it a total of $121.77 inclusive” per room per night. The Sheraton is including free parking and free wi-fi in this inclusive cost.

One change being made with the 2016 Annual Conference is to open early registration for delegates and nondelegates at the same time. Early registration for delegates and non-delegates will open online at www.brethren.org on Feb. 17, 2016.

This change “will simplify making housing reservations for delegate registration to open at the same time as everything else,” Douglas noted. “Please feel free to share this information with congregations,” she requested.
