Nashville, Tenn.: Volunteers can now apply online to serve as marshals or pages during The United Methodist Church’s 2016 General Conference. The denomination’s top legislative assembly will meet in Portland, Oregon, May 10-20, 2016.
Approximately 150 volunteers are needed to serve as marshals and pages during General Conference. Preference will be given to applicants who can serve throughout the entire conference.
Marshals are responsible for assisting visitors and special guests in the visitor and reserved seating galleries, checking credentials to make sure that only authorized persons are admitted to the bar of the conference or that of legislative committees, and other duties as assigned.
Pages assist delegates, secretarial staff, bishops, members of the Judicial Council and official visitors. They distribute approved materials and deliver printed information.
Volunteers 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 Rev. Dick Hooton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
