Whether in attendance or at home, you can stay connected to the 2014 Annual Conference in Peoria June 4-7.
IGRC Communications, in cooperation with Doxieworks LLC, has launched an app on both the Android and iOS (Apple) platforms which will be used during annual conference and then refashioned for use throughout the year.
While at conference, users will receive daily updates to their legislative materials with vote totals from the previous day and once the session adjourns, one final update will be done to provide lay and clergy members the materials they need to make reports to their local congregations.
