Committee proposes change to annual meeting
    October 18 2010 by BSC

    The 2010 Committee on Convention Meetings will be recommending to the messengers of the upcoming 180th annual meeting of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, scheduled for Nov. 8-10, 2010, a change in the proposed schedule for the 181st annual meeting, to occur in November 2011.

    The recommendation will be as follows:

    The Committee on Convention Meetings moves that the annual meeting for 2011 move to a two day meeting. The proposed dates for the convention meeting are November 7 and 8.

    A move to a two-day meeting is beneficial to both those planning the annual meeting and those attending the annual meeting.

    The greatest financial savings will come to those who attend the annual meeting, specifically messengers, as a shorter convention will allow many messengers to return home rather than spending an additional evening in the hotel and the additional expenses associated with the third day of a convention meeting. 

    Through a review of attendance on the third day of the annual meeting over the last decade, it is obvious that fewer and fewer messengers are attending a third day.

    Many North Carolina Baptists may not realize that our convention is only one of a handful that continues to hold three-day meetings of the convention.

    However, it is also important to note that in spite of the length of the meeting, North Carolina continues to have the largest attended annual meeting of state conventions across the Southern Baptist Convention.

    The Committee will bring this motion during the Monday evening session of the upcoming annual meeting.

    Messengers will determine whether this proposal moves forward at that time.

    Only messengers who have registered prior to the beginning of the Monday evening session will be able to participate in this discussion.

    We hope that you will attend the convention Monday evening, participate in this discussion, and celebrate what our Lord has accomplished through our Convention this year.
