Getting the error in the title above. See the code below. How can I fix without calling my AD.getfullName method again in the buttonAuthorize_click event? I know my SQL statements are good because if I remove the offending one the other three pieces of data write correctly.

Thanks in advance.
private void main_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            //Determine AD user name and full name. These are calls to a custom class I made and these calls work fine.
            string userName = AD.getuserName();
            string userFullName = AD.getfullName(userName);
            //Create collection for employee names
            StringCollection employees = new StringCollection();
            // userFullName shows up correctly here - so I know my variable is getting populated correctly.
            this.Text = "Crew Reserve Tracker: " + userFullName; 
            employees = MISA.getCrew();
             foreach (String employee in employees)
        private void buttonAuthorize_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            int randomNumber = RandomNumber(10000, 99000);
            string crewName = crewBox.Text.ToString();
            DateTime now = DateTime.Now;
            //Open connection to SQL DB
            SqlConnection conn =
            new SqlConnection("Data Source=SERVER;Initial Catalog=DB01;Integrated Security=True");
            string sqlInsert = "INSERT INTO Authorizations (Date, AuthNumber, CrewMember, Employee) values (@now, @randomNumber, @crewName, @userFullName)";
            SqlCommand sqlCom = new SqlCommand(sqlInsert, conn);
            sqlCom.Parameters.AddWithValue("@now", now);
            sqlCom.Parameters.AddWithValue("@randomNumber", randomNumber);
            sqlCom.Parameters.AddWithValue("@crewName", crewName);
            sqlCom.Parameters.AddWithValue("@userFullName", userFullName);
