July 13, 2011 Governance Update
I am pleased to inform you that the official results of our first-ever online ballot have been forwarded to me by our Polling Officers and are noted below:
- In regard to our proposed Governance Plan, Constitution and Bylaws: 138 elders approved and 10 elders disapproved. Therefore, the Governance Plan, Constitution and Bylaws are approved.
- In regard to our two options for selecting leadership: 82 elders chose Option 1 (Balloting) and 66 elders chose Option 2 (Balloting/Impartial Selection). Therefore, we shall select leadership using Option 1 (Balloting).
Based upon the results of this ballot, our next step in implementing our governance plan will be the selection of nominees for the Ministerial Board of Directors (MBOD). Thank you all for your prayers, your support and your encouragement as we continue to move forward.
