Dear Annual Conference members,

Just a quick update on a couple of AC-related items for all of you! It's been a month since we met, but here are a few updates:

Please complete the AC survey if you haven't already. It's very helpful for us as we met using a new platform to discuss essential-only business.

As was noted during our virtual Annual Conference session, we didn't get the time to honor our retirees in the way we normally do. Attached is a booklet for you to read the wonderful stories of our retirees and learn a little about their years in ministry. As Bishop Elaine Stanovsky noted, we hope to spend more time honoring retirees and others during Annual Conference 2021.

The 2020 Journal is available online! Thanks to the hard work of Conference Secretary Laura Jaquith Bartlett, you can now access the 2020 Oregon-Idaho Conference Journal online at You can download the whole journal, or individual chapters. As per usual, the whole journal and chapter 5, which features the clergy directory, are password protected. The password is the same as previous years. If you need help remembering it, be sure to contact your district office. A print-on-demand option to order your own book will be available soon.

Be well,

Kristen Caldwell
Conference Communications Manager
