Each conference also scheduled time to hold their own business meetings during the gathering. The Iowa Conference, unable to meet the number of voting delegates to constitute a quorum for an official meeting, presented information about the budget and other topics. Participants then asked questions and provided feedback to the Iowa Board of Directors (BOD). Per the
Iowa Conference Constitution and Bylaws, the BOD takes action on behalf of the conference when the annual meeting is not in session or cannot meet quorum for an official meeting.
