This special called session will be held online only, on Zoom for members and live-streamed for others. The Zoom link and voting credentials will be sent to registered members during the week preceding the Special Session.

The sole purpose of the Special Session is to affirm or not affirm the church conference actions of local churches that are choosing to ask to disaffiliate from The United Methodist Church under the provisions of ¶ 2553 of The Book of Discipline, 2019 Addendum. The Board of Trustees will present negotiated settlements that cannot be amended. The members of the Annual Conference will affirm or not affirm the agreements by a simple majority vote.
