Seven Things You Need to Know About Bishop's Convocation 2020

It's time for the 2020 Bishop’s Convocation and we are excited!

To help you get set for the event, here are seven helpful tips designed to help you make the most of your time at Bishop's Convocation:

1. There is ample free parking for all Convocation participants at the Kartrite Resort, located at 555 Resorts World Drive, Monticello, NY 12701. Valet parking is available at your expense. 

2. Shuttle service is available: If you signed up to ride a shuttle to the Kartrite, your seat is already reserved. The shuttle from St. Paul and St. Andrew UMC (263 W. 86th Street, New York) will leave at 10:30 a.m. The shuttle from Memorial UMC (250 Bryant Avenue, White Plains) will leave at 11:15 a.m.

3. There are multiple entrances into the Kartrite Resort facility. We recommend you enter at the Kartrite’s main entrance and Lobby. The main entrance has a covered area for loading and unloading luggage. 

4. We will have a special Room and Registration Check-In for Convocation participants in our primary event space, which will be in the “Think Tank and Events” area. When you enter the Main Lobby, turn towards your LEFT and follow the posted signs to our event space. We will have a table set up for event and room check-in. The majority of our sessions will be in the Hudson Assembly Room. Official room check-in time is 4:00 pm, but we will check you into your rooms as they become available. You can find a Map of the Kartrite Resort here

5. The Convocation schedule is available online: Our event begins with Registration and Fellowship Time with Bishop Bickerton from 2pm-3:30pm tomorrow. Opening Worship will begin at 3:30pm. You can find the schedule for the rest of the Bishop’s Convocation here

6. Your room reservation comes with an unlimited pass to the indoor water park. The water park hours are 10am to 8pm. 

7. Childcare is provided during event sessions and worship. Please see Ken Coddington for details. The Kartrite Resort has babysitters available if you need childcare while we are not in session. 

We are looking forward to spending time with you this week! 

See you soon,
