2016 November Semi-Annual Meeting

We gathered on 11/20 after worship for our winter annual meeting. Our agenda was to hear from our Nominations Committee regarding Council nominations, a finance update from our Finance Team, and to vote on our Constitution.

2016 CLC Constitution - as in 2015, this Constitution includes only the required language from the ELCA Model Constitution. This document also incorporates the changes made by the National Assembly. A report of those changes can be viewed here. As these changes came from the National Assembly, they need only be ratified with one vote. If this constitution passes in this meeting it will have been ratified twice and will then proceed to the Synod Office for final approval. (Update: The Constitution was approved by voice vote.)

Proposed Constitution (Note - the change being presented is that we will use only the required language from the ELCA in our constitution, allowing it to be approved more easily. Congregation specific concerns, such as the format of the Council, will exist in the bylaws. More information about this will be coming throughout 2016.
