GS 1995 ARTICLE 116 – Rules for Appointments to Synodical Committees
The Executive presents:
Agenda item VIII. C. 8
Overture from the church at Carman re: appointment to synodical committees
The church at Carman requests Synod to consider that appointments to the Deputies for Ecclesiastical Unity, the Committee for Relations with Churches Abroad and the Committee for Contact with the OPC be restricted to the initial appointment plus two re-appointments. In this proposal any one committee mem- ber would be eligible for a maximum total of nine consecutive years representa- tion on the Committee.
- A. At the present time there is no rule for appointments.
- B. The suggestion by the church at Carman ensures continuity and at the same time allows for new regular change over of members.
- C. The suggestion of Carman would be beneficial for other standing committees appointed by General Synod.
Synod decide to implement, as far as possible, the suggestion of the church at Carman.
