Attendance is FREE for people affiliated with the New York Conference (Conference Commission on Religion & Race pays the $250 cost), however there is a $250 refundable deposit for this training. Without payment of the $250, your registration is not complete. This fee will be returned to NYAC-affiliated registrants after the completion of the training. Registrants who do not attend, or do not cancel within 2 weeks of the training will forfeit the $250.00. Please reach out to Rev. Sheila Beckford at Sheila.Beckford@nyac-umc.com to discuss any hardship situations.
- Limited housing IS available for registrants who request to stay on the evening of Sunday, February 10th. If you would like to arrive the evening before the training please email Sheila.Beckford@nyac-umc.com
- Attendance cost is $150.00 for registrants who are United Methodist from another conference. CCORR leadership is more than willing to work with you and your conference to find funding as needed. Information about the deposit is the same as in the previous bullet point, with $100 of the deposit refunded to you.
- Attendance cost is $250.00 for registrants who are not affiliated with the United Methodist Church. We encourage all who want to participate in our trainings to register, however please note that Non-UMC affiliates will have to pay the full registration fee.
- Without hesitation, please reach out to Rev. Sheila Beckford at Sheila.Beckford@nyac-umc.com to discuss any hardship situations or concerns you may have.
