Join the United Methodist Association of Communicators
All United Methodist communicators can benefit from the relationships developed through the United Methodist Association of Communicators (UMAC), whether serving on staff at a general agency or conference; working for a related institution or ministry; volunteering time on a conference commission or attending school.
Within our network we hope to share ideas, learn new ways of communicating, and study best practices. We also aim to stay on top of new technologies and trends. Most importantly, we develop relationships and connections that strengthen your ministry. Through annual gatherings, UMAC members receive support and encouragement in their ministries.
Membership is based on the calendar year, January-December. Membership dues are not pro-rated, but may be paid anytime throughout the year for that calendar year.
At the 2011 UMAC annual meeting in Albuquerque, three membership options were announced.
Individual Full-time Communicator - A full-time professional communicator who either works full-time for a local church, conference or agency or is a member of the United Methodist Church and who works in a communications-related industry. Payment options include a $75 individual membership, or a $200 group payment option for a staff of up to four full-time communicators working for the same organization.
Student, Retired, Part-time and Volunteer Individual Membership - Individuals working as a part-time or volunteer communicator for a local church, conference or agency or serving as a member of a conference communications commission or council; retired communicators; and full-time communications students. Dues are $40 a year.
