The opportunity is here once again for you, your congregation or any of its members to offer a resolution for consideration at the 2013 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 new 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

Rev. Mark Reisinger, Chair
216 S. Market St., Mechanicsburg PA 17055
All resolutions must be submitted no later than February 22, 2013.
Please indicate a contact person should the Team need to contact the petitioner for clarification.
