New DAC Journal Distribution Process

As part of the larger changes taking place, a significant change has been made to how DAC Journals will be distributed and ordered, starting at the 2017 Annual Conference.

Starting in 2017, the DAC Journal will no longer be automatically mailed out as it has been in the past.

The following will need to ORDER and PAY for a Journal from online in order to receive it:

  • local churches
  • individual persons, including clergy if they want a personal copy
  • conference committees, agencies, boards
  • all lay persons

Exception: retired clergy and surviving spouses (of the year the clergyperson is memorialized at annual conference). These persons will continue to receive one complimentary copy of the Journal; no order will be necessary. Extras may be ordered online as desired.

Entities may order and pay for as many or as few as they would like.

A link to the online order site will be published and made available on the Michigan Area website when the Journal is ready for publication.

The Journal will no longer contain the historical reports. This information will only be available online (downloadable pdf) at the Michigan Area website.
