From April 30, 2019 Presbytery meeting: The Stated Clerk proposed a standing rule for approving minutes since the two decision making bodies of the presbytery meet quarterly and their minutes are required to execute approved actions. Waiting until until the minutes are approved at the next meeting creates an inconvenience.
The presbytery APPROVED the following resolution, “Resolved, That the following standing rule be adopted regarding the minutes of the Executive Board and the presbytery: The Stated Clerk will draft the minutes and distribute them, in the case of the presbytery, to the continuing members and the churches, in the case of the Executive Board, its members, for review and suggested additions, corrections or deletions. Ten days after the distribution and after reviewing any suggestions, the moderator, vice moderator and immediate past moderator may approve the minutes.”
Contact Stated Clerk Dean Strong with suggested corrections.
