Proposed Amendment to our Bylaws
The Executive Committee, upon the recommendation of the Committee on Church and Ministry, recommends the following amendment to Central Association’s Bylaws as section “j” on Page 9 of 11, line 382:   Section IX. Committees, 2. Church and Ministry:

(j) Sections of the Committee may meet separately from the Committee of the Whole, on, at most, a quarterly basis, as that Section’s workload or agenda may require.  When a Section elects to meet separately from the Committee of the Whole, a written report must be submitted to the Chair of the Committee prior to the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Committee.  At any meeting of the Committee in which a Section is not present because that Section has or will meet separately in that month, no formal decisions will be made by the Committee.  Any pending votes will carry over to the next meeting of the Committee of the whole.  The quorum for any Sectional meeting shall be a majority of its membership.  The quorum for the Committee of the Whole shall be a majority of its membership.  The quorum for two Sections meeting together shall be a majority of their combined membership.

Explanation:  As you may remember at the Fall meeting on Oct. 28, 2017,  this item (paragraph “j”) was removed from the bylaws and referred to the Committee on Church & Ministry for rewording.  The above amendment is the result of that referral. 

Child care will be provided
