You are receiving this memo to remind you of the requirements for submitting reports, resolutions and petitions to be considered by annual conference.
 
Please refer to the “Rules” Section X of the Conference Journal – Rules 27 & 28 address the submission requirements. You can view the rules in the Journal here: https://www.nyac.com/files/journal/nyac-2016-journal-section-10.pdf
 
All reports, resolutions and petitions to be considered by the annual conference shall be in the hands of the conference secretary six weeks before the beginning date of the annual conference in order to be included in the Conference Program Booklet.”
 
“All resolutions or petitions for conference consideration shall be signed by at least five members of the conference, with the exception of petitions from local churches, which shall have been adopted by majority vote of the respective church’s Church Council (or equivalent structure) or Charge Conference.”
 
For 2018 reports, petitions and resolutions are due no later than Thursday, April 26th! Please make every effort to meet this due date.
 
Prepare your report as an editable Word document – yes WORD document (not more than 700 words), using this heading as a guide:
