Voting at the upcoming Presbyterial meeting

When we meet in August, the one item we will vote on is moving the annual Presbyterial meeting to closer match the new yearly schedule. With the current calendar running Sept – Aug, having the Presbyterial meeting in August was appropriate. The Presbyterial year starting in Sept of 2011 runs until the end of Dec in 2012 with the next year starting Jan 2013 as we get back on a calendar year schedule.

The proposal that we will vote on is to move the meeting to the 3rd Saturday in October. That would October 20, 2012 for next year’s meeting.

According to the Bylaws in article III on Representation:
The voting body of this organization shall consist of:

1.  All officers as listed in Article IV of the Constitution
(That is: Presbyterial President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Past President.  Presbyterial Ministry chairmen: Spiritual Life, Missions and Outreach, Family Care, Historian)
2.  Chairmen of Standing Committees
3.  Past Presidents of First Presbyterial
4.  ARP Women’s Ministries Board members who are members of First Presbyterial
5. The President of the local church women’s organization – Alternate: her Vice President
6. The Treasurer of the local church women’s organization – Alternate: a board member in her local church women’s organization.
7.  Two representatives from each local church women’s organization

Notice the last 3 items in the list apply to your local church. One item of business to address before coming to Presbyterial would be identifying anyone who will attend as a delegate to vote and perhaps discuss the topic to be voted on so the delegate is prepared.
