RESOLUTIONS FOR ANNUAL CONFERENCE DEADLINE JANUARY 13, 2017

One of the special expressions of the United Methodist polity is the opportunity for members of the connection to offer a resolution for consideration to a conference. The founders of our movement believed that in conferencing the Holy Spirit of God could guide us to consider the prompting of our members. The opportunity is here once again for you, your congregation or any of its members to offer a resolution for consideration at the 2017 session of Annual Conference.
 
A resolution typically is formatted with a series of statements beginning with "Whereas." These statements provide the rationale of the petitioner. These statements demonstrate the assumptions that the petitioner holds. They belong to the petitioner. After the series of "Whereas" statements, there appears at least one statement that begins "Therefore, be it resolved." This becomes the main motion that is put before the Conference. If more than one action is being petitioned, another statement may be added beginning "Be it further resolved."
 
The Mission and Outreach Team is charged with receiving these resolutions and passing them on to conference with either a vote of concurrence or non-concurrence.
 
Resolutions are to be clearly printed and sent together with supporting documentation. It is preferred that all resolutions be received electronically via email. You can email them to me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. And, if you are unable to email the resolutions, you may mail them to:
 
Mission and Outreach Team
Rev. Mark Reisinger, Chair
42 S. 3rd St.
Lewisburg, PA 17837
 
Please indicate a contact person should we need to contact the petitioner for clarification.
 
Because Annual Conference will meet one month earlier in 2017, all resolutions must be submitted no later than
January 13, 2017.

 
Rev. Mark Reisinger, Chair
