Included in the packet below is a letter from the Executive Council explaining its reasons for proposing the amendments to Article 11, and instructions for your congregation’s meeting to consider ratification of the amendments approved by the convocation. Also included is a model ballot for congregational meetings and the required form for reporting your congregation’s decision. Each voting congregation is required to submit one Notice of Ratification Vote form.
These amendments must be ratified by two-thirds of NALC congregations voting within six months of the conclusion of the 2021 Mission Convocation before they will go into effect. February 6, 2022 is the deadline for your congregation’s meeting to consider ratification.
