Triennium participants come to the event as a part of a delegation (Triennium lingo for “group”). A delegation originates from either a presbytery or a congregation. Each delegation is managed by a registrar.
A registrar is a volunteer from either a presbytery or a church who agrees to manage the details of registration (see Registrar Responsibilities). Registrars are invited or appointed (or begged) to serve by a presbytery staff person, committee, church session, church staff person or church committee. In other words, a registrar should be a person who a presbytery or church knowingly invites to serve in the registrar position. Though many registrars are members of the delegation, they do not have to come to Triennium.
What does it take to be a good registrar?
- Organizational skill (record keeping, communication)
- Electronic skill (email, Facebook, texting, Excel, Word, registration website)
- A willingness to gently, but consistently pester people to turn in their information
- A good delegator (Triennium delegation registration works best with a small, hard working team of volunteers)
