We sent out a mass email last week with various year-end reminders. It’s worth repeating them here.
Annual Reports Due March 15
The annual reports have been mailed to all churches and pastors.
- The Local Church report, which senior pastors must complete.
- The Minister’s report, which all licensed ministers must complete.
It is VERY important that we receive your report on time (the deadline is March 15), so we can record the information in our database and compile reports to send to delegates for the US National Conference.
Any church not submitting the church annual report form by March 15 will not be allowed representation at National Conference.
You can also download these reports as MS Word forms which you can fill out on your computer and then email back to the bishop.
February: Referenda Voting
February is when churches vote on two proposed changes to the UB Constitution. We call them “referenda.”
You need to put someone in charge of that–getting ballots to people, checking off names as people vote, recording results, etc. The results must be returned to Bishop Ramsey by March 15.
Who are Your Lay Delegate(s)?
Your church needs to select laypersons to represent your church at the US National Conference. Every church can send at least one person. Churches have been notified of the number of delegates they can send.
Bishop Ramsey needs to know by March 1 who your delegates are.
