As seating for dinner will be assigned, please make your reservation as a group so that your entire party may be seated together. The deadline to make reservations is Friday, November 3. Please pick up your dinner tickets from the Information Table in the Upper Concourse on Friday, November 10.
EDLA will have childcare providers onsite to care for children ages 0-12 during Convention in a breakout room adjacent to the Exhibit Hall. Toys, activities, snacks, and meals will be provided.
(High schoolers and young adults are welcome and encouraged to serve as Convention volunteers. Please email EDLA’s Missioner for Youth Ministries Gabe Vazquez-Reyes at email@example.com for additional information.)
Please fill out this form to pre-register for childcare. Once submitted, you will be emailed a more detailed form that needs to be given to the staff at Convention when you drop off your child(ren).
There is no charge for childcare, but cash or check donations to help offset costs are gratefully accepted. If you’d like to donate with a check, please make it out to the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles and write “Convention Childcare” in the memo line.
