BSC annual meeting to follow two-day schedule
    June 7 2011 by BSC Communications

    The 2011 annual meeting of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina (BSC) will, for the first time since 1994, feature a two-day meeting instead of a three-day meeting. Messengers approved the change during the 2010 annual meeting.

    North Carolina Baptists will gather at the Koury Convention Center in Greensboro Monday, Nov. 7-Tuesday, Nov. 8. The two-day schedule eliminates the Wednesday morning session.

    The shorter convention will allow many messengers to return home rather than spending an additional evening in a hotel, and additional expenses associated with the third day of a convention meeting will be eliminated.  

    The shortened schedule will still allow appropriate time for all aspects of the annual meeting, such as the Convention sermon, ministry reports, business sessions, theme interpretations and times of worship. More detailed information about various sessions and presentations will be available soon at

    Messengers will be able to stay at the headquarter’s hotel, the Sheraton Four Seasons in Greensboro, for a discounted rate of $99 per night ($112.61 including tax). This pre-pay rate, which is the same for king and double rooms, is only available at the BSC annual meeting web site.

    Reservations cannot be made by calling the Sheraton or the BSC.

    A reservation is refundable if notice of cancellation is given at least 24 hours prior to time of check-in. All messengers staying at the Sheraton receive free wireless Internet.

    The annual meeting has been held at the Koury Convention Center in Greensboro for several years.

    The Sheraton Hotel is located on the same property as the Convention Center, allowing messengers easy access to their hotel room and all the meeting halls.

    North Carolina Baptists who make their room reservation online, as opposed to mail-in registration or even phone and email registration, will reduce cost and time spent by staff processing reservations. The reservation deadline is Oct. 31.

    The reservations made after Oct. 31 must be made directly with the Sheraton Hotel at their normal rate.
