  1. Will,I was referring to the crltendiaes you need to be registered as a voting messenger. Used to, everyone had to remember to bring their Messenger Card. You could get them by mail or at your Association office. If not that, a letter or even a bulletin from your church showing you (by name) are a duly elected messenger from your church. The Messenger Card was best to have, and got you through the registration line quickest. Invariably someone would forget it. I’m pretty sure you can still register that way. Of course, now you young guys can just register for the convention online; but you have to have your church ID number, etc. If you do it this way, just carefully follow their directions; it will save a lot of hassle. I think you can do it at sbc.net. Anyway, when packing for your trip just make sure you have what you need to register and get your ballots to vote at the convention. Then hang on to those ballots! The Registration Line should be somewhere close to the entrance to the convention. (You may also need photo ID.)David R.
