Once you've got it, update your info in the "Who's Here" section so that we can all stay connected. "This app is public and it's for everyone," says Julia Frisbie, head of communications for LYNC. "But it's made especially with our volunteers in mind. We are blessed with the most incredible people. This is one way we're trying to give back and make General Conference easier for them."
Volunteers will be glad to know that the app contains maps and important documents, as well as a way to populate their own personal schedule with LYNC events during General Conference. And new features are being added all the time!
"If you'll be in Portland for General Conference," says Frisbie, "make sure to enable push notifications from the app. We probably won't use this feature more than once a day. But if something spontaneous starts happening, people who get the push notifications will be the first to know. That'll be our way of calling for all hands on deck."
It's an exciting time to be part of this movement. Connect with other progressive United Methodists by downloading our app!
