Instructions for Annual Reports

Every credential holder must file an annual report. Please follow these instructions carefully to complete your required report(s).

All required reports are now completed online. Since we currently do not have the ability to save a partially filled in report, each report must be completed at one sitting.

Click on the link for the desired report below and complete. The submitted report will be automatically emailed to the General Secretary and your Conference Superintendent. If you want a copy of your report emailed to you, make sure you add your email address in the proper box on the form.

If you do not have the ability to complete your report online and want a paper copy to submit, please contact Rev. Coulston at EMC Headquarters.
