Policies and Procedures
General Assembly is the largest annual gathering of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). The General Assembly offers an excellent opportunity for exhibitors to meet face-to-face with pastors, leaders, and decision-makers from across the country and around the world. These individuals have a strong influence on the decisions for services, vendors, and resources of their churches, ministries, and organizations.
As an exhibitor, you will have the opportunity to develop relationships with church members and workers, build name recognition and market your organization’s products and programs, and maximize your exposure and visibility through sponsorship opportunities

There are three times a year that exhibitors can submit application for approval, October, April, and June. We encourage all potential exhibitors to send in their forms by September for the October meeting. Doing so guarantees when registration opens in December, approved new exhibitors will be able to sign-up immediately. The latter approval dates still provide opportunities to exhibit, but if you are interested in the current year, the earlier the submission the better!
If you have thought about exhibiting at GA but are not sure if you are able to attend that year, we encourage you to make sure that you fill out the paperwork to become an approved exhibitor. Being approved as an exhibitor does not mean that you must exhibit with us at General Assembly in a given year, it means that you are able to register any year in the next 5 years.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any other questions!
Submit paperwork by September 8, 2022 for the October AC meeting.
