North Carolina Baptists still have time to submit
recommendations of people to serve on the Baptist State Convention’s (BSC)
Board of Directors, the boards of the Convention’s agencies and
institutions, and Convention committees.
The Convention’s Committee on Nominations seeks diversity
among the recommendations that will represent churches of various sizes,
various professional and educational backgrounds, ethnic and racial diversity,
geographical areas, different age groups, and lay persons as well as ministers.
BSC bylaws require the Committee on Nominations 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 committees, and limit BSC Board of
Director membership to one member from any church.
An individual may only serve on a single committee, whereas
in the past individuals could serve in more than one place at one time.
Therefore, it is essential for North Carolina Baptists to
recommend more individuals to serve on the Board of Directors and Convention
committees. Nominations are due January 31, 2011.
