The conference website is now open to receive information from those interested in serving on the General Conference and Jurisdictional Conference delegations.
The Conference elections policy calls for the site to include a provision for personal contact information, appointments served, and leadership positions held in the conference and district by clergy. Interested laity will be provided a space to put personal contact information, local church membership, occupation, and whether they are a youth, young adult or adult.
All persons interested in serving may submit a statement up to 100 words concerning their interest, issues and qualifications to be considered as a potential delegate.
Laity interested in serving will have a deadline of March 31 to submit their information for inclusion in a printed booklet that will be mailed with the Book of Recommendations and Reports in early May. The website will remain open through the Annual Conference session for other laypersons to declare their availability. Lay persons declaring their willingness to serve after March 31 will not be included in the printed booklet, but will be able to speak during the time allotted to meet “candidates” during the laity session.
