Annual Conference 2021 will be virtual this year. To facilitate our gathering, we are using a platform called Lumi. For you to fully participate in the Annual Conference experience, there are a few things you need to do before we gather in June.
First, as a voting member, you will need a username and password for this year’s Annual Conference. You will receive login information via email on May 10th. After May 10th, if you didn’t receive this email, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next, open a web browser on your computer, and go to nccumc.org/ac2021/lumi. You will need to use either a desktop or laptop computer for this – the Lumi platform does not support mobile devices like phones and tablets.
When you visit the Lumi platform for the first time, you will need to give Lumi permission to utilize your microphone and camera. When Lumi asks, you will need to select the camera and microphone you want to use and then click “Allow” to give permission. In some browsers, you may also have the option for the browser to remember your choice. If you see this, make sure to check the box to remember. Otherwise, you’ll have to do this again.
Now, log into the Lumi platform using the username and password from the email. Once logged in, you’ll have the opportunity to vote on accepting the proposed rules for Annual Conference 2021. Simply click Yes or No to cast your vote.
Once you have voted, you may log out. Click the menu button (three lines) in the upper left-hand corner of the platform, then click “Log out.”
For the Clergy Executive Session on June 16th and Annual Conference on the 17th, you’ll use the same link, username, and password, to log in to Lumi and participate in Annual Conference.
If you run into any problems, please email email@example.com. Thanks – we’ll see you in June!
