New dates announced for Annual Conference 2009.

The Program and Arrangements Committee of the Church of the Brethren Annual Conference has announced a date change and a shift in the normal daily pattern for Annual Conference 2009, to be held in San Diego, Calif.

The 2009 Annual Conference will take place from opening worship on Friday, June 26, through closing worship on Tuesday, June 30. The dates for the Conference had already been shifted to one week earlier than previously announced. These new dates place the Conference on a Friday-Tuesday pattern for 2009 only; the normal Saturday-Wednesday pattern will return in 2010.

The revisions to the schedule were requested by host facility Town and Country Resort, and the city of San Diego, to accommodate a citywide event starting Tuesday evening, June 30. In appreciation for the willingness to accommodate this departure from the normal Conference daily pattern, room rate reductions and other considerations have been made by the city and facility. The new dates are being announced as far in advance as possible to allow for scheduling adjustments by all Annual Conference constituents, said the announcement.
