EXHIBITOR INFORMATION

Thank you for your interest in exhibiting at the 88th General Assembly of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, meeting from June 8 to June 14, 2022, at Eastern University in St Davids (Philadelphia), PA.

A limited number of exhibitor tables are available at $125/each (6 x 2½ and clothed). In order to display or exhibit at the General Assembly, you or your organization must comply with the Standing Rules of the Assembly:

Standing Rules of the Assembly
All requests to set up displays or exhibits at the Assembly on behalf of institutions, ministries, or vendors that are not committees erected by the Assembly must comply with the following guidelines:
1. All such requests to set up displays or exhibits shall be made in writing (on official letterhead stationery) and received by the Stated Clerk not later than 30 days before the opening of the Assembly.
2. The Committee on Arrangements shall determine the boundaries of the meeting hall of the Assembly within which only committees of the Assembly may set up displays or exhibits.
3. To the extent that the Assembly has control at the meeting facility over displays or exhibits beyond the bounds of the meeting hall, the Committee on Arrangements shall allocate space for displays and exhibits in the following priority based upon whose work is being presented:
a. Committees erected by the Assembly;
b. Other judicatories of the OPC;
c. Seminaries from which the Committee on Christian Education is currently actively recruiting interns;
d. Individual members of the OPC;
e. Other institutions, ministries, or vendors whose work is not hostile to the Reformed faith as expressed in the Confession of Faith and Catechisms.

If you and the organization you represent fall within these Standing Rules and desire to register as an exhibitor, you must contact one of our exhibit coordinators John Muether or Joe Troutman to obtain a required exhibitor code BEFORE registering. Register as the appropriate type (commissioner, visitor, etc.), and purchase an Exhibitor Table on the Additional Items page when registering.

Due to the time it takes to get through the college mail system, materials arriving after June 1 may not be delivered to us in time for the opening of the exhibits. Efram Harkins will receive all the shipments, and his team will deliver them to the exhibit area by Wednesday morning.
