Beginning April 4, 2018, volunteers will be able to apply online to serve as marshals or pages during the 2019 Special Session of the General Conference of The United Methodist Church. The denomination’s top legislative assembly will meet February 23-26, 2019 in St Louis, Missouri, in the U.S.
Approximately 150 volunteers are needed to serve as marshals and pages during General Conference. Applicants must be able to serve all four days of the Special Session.
Marshals will be part of the team that will assist delegates, guests, and staff with seating, checking credentials, providing information, and other duties as assigned.
Pages will assist delegates, staff, bishops, members of the Judicial Council and official guests with communication and other needs. They distribute approved materials and deliver printed information. Pages should expect to do a great deal of walking.
Marshals and pages are responsible for their own travel and expenses. Those interested should submit an online application before the deadline of July 31. If you have additional questions, contact Dick Hooton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A separate process will be opened at a later date seeking marshals and pages for the 2020 General Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
