Prepares to Announce Appointments
to Fill Vacancies
The Governing Board continues to work through their timeline to appoint new members by October to fill vacant seats.
Seven individuals applied for four available positions. Two clergy applied for the one vacant seat. Five lay people applied for the four vacant seats.
The key skill sets needed at this time include experience in governance, polity, bylaws, financial management and fund development.
The Governing Board will make final decisions by 5 October and notify applicants soon after. An announcement about the appointments is planned for 8 October.
Appointments to these positions will continue until General Conference 2019. Those who are appointed will also have the opportunity to apply for the 2019 Governing Board slate.
Pray for the applicants and Governing Board members as they discern together.
