Assembly 2022

TURN IT UP!

Dear West Ohio United Methodist Women,

 

Opening registration for Assembly 2022 is here! You may want to attend in-person or perhaps virtually. Either way our 21st Assembly promises to be exciting, educational, nurturing, and fun. You will not want to miss out. The Assembly website contains a wealth of information and resources regarding the upcoming event. You are invited to visit the site at assembly2022.org.

 

We would like to know who is attending Assembly from West Ohio, whether in-person or virtually, so we are asking everyone who is interested in participating to sign up by filling out the form at Going to Assembly. This is the way we can send information out through emails and texts as we prepare to go and while we are there, to gather for pictures, meet-ups, etc. You will want to fill this form out ASAP if you need a roommate so that we can match you up with another sister from West Ohio. If you know someone who is going but does not subscribe to the West Ohio UMW eNews, please forward this email.

 

After you register, you will want to book your hotel room. West Ohio has a block of rooms reserved through the Assembly organizer. You will find more information about hotel reservations below. 

 

I am serving as the West Ohio Conference Assembly Leader. If you have any questions, please feel free leave a message in the "Let's Chat" box that you will find on this page. If I do not know the answer, I will try to find out for you.

 

See you at assembly!

Beth Vanoli

Register early online at assembly2022.org to receive the early bird discount of $30 off the regular registration fee. The discount ends on Nov. 30, 2021. A registration acknowledgement will be e-mailed to you upon completion of your registration.
 
Please know that proof of vaccination and/or wearing a mask may be required to attend Assembly. The United Methodist Women National Office is following guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and will comply with all applicable health and safety guidance to protect the safety of event attendees. We ask that you remain flexible with us as we continue to monitor best options as health guidelines evolve. We are excited to be able to offer both a live and a virtual option for the 2022 Assembly.

Workshops 
Assembly 2022 will feature pre-registered workshops. When you register for Assembly, you may sign up for one workshop on Friday and one workshop on Saturday. The list of workshops will be posted on the Assembly website, under the Event Info tab—Workshops drop-down menu, so you may review the options prior to registering and make a list of your top choices.

Virtual option
Can't join us in Orlando? Then join us from your living room! Assembly 2022 has both in-person and online experiences allowing even more women to participate and TURN IT UP! Virtual attendees receive access to all five Community Gatherings, one workshop on Friday and Saturday, exclusive behind-the-scenes speaker interviews, sisterhood networking, and more. Knowing you no longer pay for travel, hotel, and meals—this is a great bargain for the low early registration price of $199. Please know that your link for the virtual option can only be used with one device and cannot be shared.
