Daily Proceedings

During and following the General Conference, daily transcripts of the Conference proceedings will be available here, made possible through the Daily Christian Advocate.

The Daily Christian Advocate (DCA) is the most important reference for the General Conference. It contains daily transcripts of the conference proceedings, news stories and features and daily summaries of legislative committee actions. An advance edition is available before the conference and then one issue is produced each day of the conference. A wrap-up edition is available following the close of the conference.

Representatives of all United Methodist and ecumenical publications will be responsible for ordering their own Daily Christian Advocates (advance and daily issues). Call Cokesbury at 1-800-672-1789 or visit their web site at http://www.cokesbury.com. Secular press representatives will find copies of the advance edition available for reference in the news room. They will also be given complimentary tickets at the News Assignment Desk which they may exchange at the Cokesbury Display Room for Daily Christian Advocates during the time they are attending the conference.

Advance Edition (Vol I - Sections 1 and 2) includes all legislative proposals organized by legislative committees -- $35 (item no. 701327). Handbook for Delegates (Vol. II) includes names, addresses, and committee assignments for all delegates, information about the conference, and proposed rules of order -- $7 (item no. 701442). Volumes I and II will be mailed via United Parcel Service from Nashville on Feb. 24. Foreign copies will be delivered via the U.S. Postal System.

To get a full report on all actions taken in Cleveland, you may order Daily Reports with a binder and the Round-up Edition -- $45 (item no. 701624). These editions include news items, legislative actions, and a verbatim account of the 10-day sessions.

For a brief 16-page summary of conference actions, you may  order only the Round-up Edition -- $3 each; 10 or more copies to the same address, $1 each (item no. 701681). 

Daily Reports and the Round-up Edition will be mailed May 15  from Cleveland. The Round-up Edition will also be included in the July-August edition of Circuit Rider magazine.

Delegates, first reserves, bishops, Judicial Council members, and the Commission on General Conference will automatically receive all copies. All others, including the press, will need to order the materials. For more information or to order any of these items, call 1-800/672-1789. For editorial concerns, call Rich Peck (615/749-6007).
