Be Prepared for Sabbath!
No transactions will be processed from 5pm on Friday until 6pm on Sabbath evening. This includes meals and registrations, so if you plan on purchasing a registration or Sabbath meals, please do so before 5pm on Friday.
If you have already registered and purchased meals, you will be able to check-in and pick up your badges during the Sabbath hours.
Wear Your Event Badge
You will receive a badge when you check-in. This badge is very, very important. It is your pass to everything and everywhere including the meal hall if you purchased meal tickets. So keep it safe around your neck. Don’t let it sit in your room or in your bags or pockets!
If you would like to lend a hand in one of the many tasks at the conference, we invite you to fill out the Volunteer Application located on your registration profile*. Please note, you must be registered for the conference before you can access the application. There are many areas where you can serve!
*Precedence is given to volunteers under the age of 36. If you are older and would still like to help, please come to the Volunteer table onsite near the registration area.
Do you like running for a cause?
Sign up online to run the 5K or visit the 5K booth next to the GYC booth in the exhibit hall before Sunday evening. Race registration is $30/person. Race shirts will be available to the first 200 people at packet pickup.
