The 2021 JPus conference for professional marriage officiants was a hit!

We celebrated the 20th anniversary of JPus with our first virtual conference.

Conferences provide opportunities for professional civil officiants to learn new skills, hear important news that affects their practice, network and refine their craft. Keynote speakers include Secretary of the State, Registrars, Attorney Generals and other state leaders. Topics range from setting fees to securing insurance; crafting custom vows to changing laws.

In addition to the main speakers, breakout workshops and vendor booths round off the event.
