Greetings in the name of Christ. As preparations are underway for the 2014 meeting of Annual Conference, June 1-4 at Frazer Memorial UMC in Montgomery, Alabama, the Committee on Standing Rules will be looking at proposed changes to these rules; you will find them listed on pages 17-27 of our 2013 Journal. If you do not have a printed Journal, you may view it online here.
Let me alert you to these upcoming deadlines, which are in our current Standing Rules:
• Any proposed changes in the Standing Rules should be received in writing by the chairperson of the Committee on Standing Rules no later than February 1. You may submit these by e-mail to RWilson@dauphinwayumc.org, or by mailing proposed changes to Robin Wilson, 1507 Dauphin St, Mobile, AL 36604.
• Resolutions shall be submitted to the Committee on Resolutions and Petitions by February 15, except in cases where it can be demonstrated by the author of a late petition that the situation which gave rise to making the petition was not apparent until after the deadline for petitions. The Chairperson of this Committee is Rev. Kathy Knight.
• Materials and reports to be included in the Brochure of Reports shall be in the hands of the Journal editor NO LATER THAN the last Monday in February (Feb 24, 2014). The Journal Editor is Jackie Slaughter. Please send any materials to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have questions or changes, do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your excellent service to God and for your work for the Kingdom.
Robin C. Wilson
