Youth at Conference - General Meeting of BC Conference

Start Date: 
May 27 2015 - 5:00pm - May 31 2015 - 12:00pm

Youth at Conference works to include a youth presence in the life and work of the General
Meeting of BC Conference. The goals are:

  • To provide youth attending conference with access to the skills, resources, information, and people which will enable them to participate fully in the Conference General Meeting as voting delegates
  • To provide an opportunity for youth to build community and networks with one another from across BC Conference
  • To be a presence of energy, passion and creativity for the annual meeting.

Each Presbytery is invited to choose 2 youth to attend youth at conference and to appoint them as Voting Delegates. There will be a charge of $100 per youth to offset some of the additional costs of overnight accomodation while meeting at Whistler. Our hope is that each presbytery will be able to provide funding for the 2 youth from their presbytery to attend. The travel costs of each voting delegate will be covered by the budget for the General Meeting.
