Meals and Menus

General and Focus Meals

Delicious meals, informative sessions and gathering with alumni and friends await you at AC2019.  General seating meals are offered throughout the conference, with space to gather casually with friends and colleagues.

Focus Meals host guest speakers and are topic based.  Learn more about the work in Liberia, celebrate 200 years of mission work with the Board of Global Ministries, or attend StrengthsFinder and learn your strengths and how to lead from them.  All Focus Meals are open to everyone unless the meal is indicated as "Invitation Only". 

Conference Equalization Members: Breakfast is an optional offering and not included in registration. Lunch and Dinner are included.  Friday night is an open night, so dinner is extra if you order through registration.

Delicious Menu Items

The Commission on the Annual Conference Session has worked very closely with the Grand Traverse Resort's new Food & Beverage Manager and Chef to bring you delicious menus throughout our conference. 

Grand Traverse Resort has committed to providing complete menus for those with special dietary needs.  So much so they have partnered with Third Coast Bakery, a local gluten-free, dairy-free, allergen-safe bakery.  Their items are delicious!  You'll find their items on the menus below used for gluten-free rolls, buns, and breakfast items.

If you avoid any of the seven main allergens (dairy, egg, tree nuts, peanuts, shellfish, fish, wheat/gluten), you can safely dine from the special allergen-free buffet line.  There will be one buffet line outside of the Michigan Ballroom and one in the Tower pre-function space. 

Please review menus during registration and select the special dietary meal or standard meal. If you have concerns once onsite, please see the Grand Traverse Resort staff.
