Committee on Nominations report
    October 7 2014 by

    The Committee on Nominations is charged with the task of receiving and reviewing the numerous recommendations provided by North Carolina Baptists for service on the Board of Directors and committees of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina as well as the boards of the institutions and agencies of the Convention.
    The Committee begins its work with the recommendations sent by North Carolina Baptists and only when exhausted, or in the event that too few recommendations have been received for a specific place of service, the committee seeks to find candidates who meet the qualifications for service as outlined in the Convention bylaws.
    The full report from the Committee on Nominations can be found on the Convention’s Annual Meeting website, in the edition of the Biblical Recorder dated October 11, 2014, on the Biblical Recorder website, and in the Book of Reports provided to each messenger who completes their registration at the Annual Meeting.
    On behalf of the Committee members listed below, I want to thank each North Carolina Baptist who completed and submitted a recommendation. It is not too early to begin thinking about those individuals whom you wish to recommend for consideration by the 2015 Committee on Nominations.  Please continue to submit your recommendations, as your input is essential to the Committee’s work and the ongoing effectiveness of the missions and ministries of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina.
    Charles Martin, Chair

    The Committee on Nominations report follows the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina’s bylaws directive to, “nominate persons for election by the Convention to the committees listed in Article I.C.1 (b) – (d) of these Bylaws, such other committees as may be assigned to it, the chair of such Convention committees, the boards of trustees and directors of all institutions and agencies of the Convention, the Board, and such other nominations as may be delegated to the committee by the Convention.” 
    Among other considerations for nominees, the bylaws state, “It is desirable that at least twenty-five percent (25%) of members nominated to all committees of the Convention, the Board, the boards of trustees and directors of the Convention’s institutions and agencies shall come from churches with a membership under four hundred (400).” This is indicated in the Committee’s report by (O) for 400 and over and by (U) for under 400 in church membership.
    The bylaws further direct that, “The Committee on Nominations shall include in its report at a minimum the name, church, home town, association, occupation and sex of each nominee, the name of the committee or board on which the nominee is to serve together with such summary information as will make clear to this Convention the diversity and breadth of representation provided by the slates of nominees.”
