April 25 new deadline for nominations

March 29, 2010

The Committee on Nominations

of the Baptist State Convention (BSC) has extended its deadline to receive

recommendations for the Board of Directors and Convention committees until

April 25. The committee did not extend the deadline for recommendations to the

boards of Convention institutions and agencies.

The Convention amended its

bylaws in November 2009 to limit an individual’s service to a single

committee or board whereas in the past individuals could serve in more than one

place at one time. Therefore, it is essential that North Carolina Baptists

recommend more individuals to serve on the BSC Board of Directors and

Convention committees.

Vacancies for the BSC

Board of Directors are as follows:

Region 1 (3 vacancies)

Region 2 (2 vacancies)

Region 3 (3 vacancies)

Region 4 (10 vacancies)

Region 5 (10 vacancies)

Region 6 (6 vacancies)

Region 7 (8 vacancies)

Region 8 (10 vacancies)

Region 9 (4 vacancies)

Region 10 (1 vacancy)

The Committee on Convention

Meetings has 10 vacancies to fill. This committee is responsible for planning

the annual meeting and any special meetings of the convention.

The Committee on Convention

Meetings is in its first year as a newly organized group. When the Convention

amended its bylaws it also reduced the number of Convention committees. The

three committees that previously worked on the meetings of the Convention

were: Committee on Program, Place, and Preacher; Committee on Local

Arrangements; and Committee on Enrollment. These three committees have all been

combined into the Committee on Convention Meetings. This new committee

configuration will result in reduced expenses and increased communications for

the planning of this meeting.

Three vacancies must be

filled for the Committee on Resolutions and Memorials. This committee is also a

result of the amended bylaws, as it combines the former Committee on Resolutions

and Committee on Memorials into one committee. This committee considers

recommendations for both resolutions and memorials and presents these

recommendations at the annual meeting.

The Historical Committee has

four vacancies to fill.

The Historical Committee encourages churches to record

their history, celebrate significant church anniversaries and preserve the

history of the BSC.

Recommendations may be sent

to Committee on Nominations, P.O. Box 1107, Cary, NC 27512–1107 or completed

online at recommend.ncbaptist.org or faxed to (919) 460-7507.

For questions related to the

recommendation process, contact Cynthia King at (800) 395-5102, ext. 5501, or [email protected].
