The Committee on Nominations of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina has extended its deadline to receive recommendations until March 15, 2010. The BSCNC bylaws require the committee to: recommend to the Convention nominees from both small and large churches (over/under 400 members), limit churches to no more than six individuals from a single church serving on all Convention boards, and limit BSCNC Board of Director membership to one member from any church.
The committee desires that North Carolina Baptists make special efforts to submit recommendations of men and women, individuals who are younger and older, ministers and laity, as well as individuals from various cultural and ethnic backgrounds. North Carolina Baptists are a diverse group of Christians and the committee desires the Convention’s boards and committees to reflect this diversity.
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. Therefore, it is essential that North Carolina Baptists recommend more individuals to serve on these various boards and committees.
In addition to the changes mentioned above, the 2010 Committee on Nominations also has the additional responsibilities formerly assigned to the Committee on Committees. The Committee on Nominations is now responsible for making recommendations for the following:
