Volunteers are invited to apply now to serve as pages and marshals at the next General Conference, scheduled for April 27-May 7, 2004, in Pittsburgh.

The application deadline is Aug. 31. Applicants will be notified of their status by Oct. 31.

Planners of the denominationwide legislative assembly say 160 volunteers are needed to assist delegates, church officials and visitors from around the world. More than 5,000 people are expected to attend the conference during its two-week span.

General Conference, which meets every four years, depends on volunteers - especially marshals and pages - for everything from assisting disabled delegates to distributing the reams of documents reviewed as the assembly sets church law. Marshals and pages travel and work at the conference at their own expense.

Application forms are available at the official 2004 General Conference Web site, http://www.umc.org/gc2004. Request an application by mail or get more information by contacting Mark Wharff, 2064 Sheldon Drive, Modesto, CA 95350-0389; e-mail: MRWharff@cs.com.
