    The Committee on Nominations (“Committee”) moves that the messengers at the 2017 annual meeting of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, Inc. (“Convention”) authorize the Committee to adjust the terms of the members of the Board of Directors of the Convention to be elected at the 2018 annual meeting of the Convention in order that the rotation for Board Members be returned “with, as nearly as may be possible, one-fourth (1/4) of membership being elected” at each subsequent annual meeting by amending Article II.B.3. of the Bylaws, entitled “Election; Terms” during calendar years 2018-19 by deleting such section in its entirety as indicated by the “Current Reading” below and replacing it with the “New Reading” as set forth below:
     
    Current Reading:
     
        3.    Election; Terms.  Each at-large member of the Board shall be elected for a term of four (4) years with, as nearly as may be possible, one-fourth (1/4) of the membership being elected at each annual meeting. No person shall be eligible to succeed himself/herself on the Board after serving on the Board whether such service has ended through expiration of the term, resignation or otherwise until one (1) full term has elapsed; provided, however, that any such at-large Board member who shall have been elected to fill a vacancy of less than two (2) years, shall be eligible to be re-elected to a full term. The term shall begin on January 1, following the annual meeting of the Convention at which at-large members were elected; and shall end on December 31 following the Convention at which their successors were elected, unless sooner terminated; provided, however, the term of office of an at-large member who has not resigned, died, become disqualified, or been removed shall not expire until a successor shall have been duly elected and qualified.
     
    New Reading:
     
        3.    Election; Terms.
     
            (a)    During calendar year 2018, each at-large member of the Board shall be elected for a term of one (1) year, two (2) years, or four (4) years as determined by the Committee on Nominations in order that the rotation for Board members be returned with, as nearly as may be possible, one-fourth (1/4) of membership being elected at each annual meeting. During calendar year 2019, each at-large member of the Board shall be elected for a term of four (4) years with, as nearly as may be possible, one-fourth (1/4) of the membership being elected at each annual meeting. Any member who is elected to serve a one-year term in 2018 shall be eligible to be re-elected at the expiration of that term for a full four-year term. Any member who is elected to serve two or more years in 2018 shall not be eligible to serve another term until one full term has elapsed. Except as set forth above, no person shall be eligible to succeed himself/herself on the Board after serving on the Board whether such service has ended through expiration of the term, resignation or otherwise until one (1) full term has elapsed; provided, however, that any such at-large Board member who shall have been elected to fill a vacancy of less than two (2) years, shall be eligible to be re-elected to a full term. The term shall begin on January 1, following the annual meeting of the Convention at which at-large members were elected; and shall end on December 31 following the Convention at which their successors were elected, unless sooner terminated; provided, however, the term of office of an at-large member who has not resigned, died, become disqualified, or been removed shall not expire until a successor shall have been duly elected and qualified.
     
            (b)    Beginning January 1, 2019, each at-large member of the Board shall be elected for a term of four (4) years with, as nearly as may be possible, one-fourth (1/4) of the membership being elected at each annual meeting. Except as provided in subsection (a) above, no person shall be eligible to succeed himself/herself on the Board after serving on the Board whether such service has ended through expiration of the term, resignation or otherwise until one (1) full term has elapsed; provided, however, that any such at-large Board member who shall have been elected to fill a vacancy of less than two (2) years, shall be eligible to be re-elected to a full term. The term shall begin on January 1, following the annual meeting of the Convention at which at-large members were elected; and shall end on December 31 following the Convention at which their successors were elected, unless sooner terminated; provided, however, the term of office of an at-large member who has not resigned, died, become disqualified, or been removed shall not expire until a successor shall have been duly elected and qualified.
     
            (c)    The amendments to Article II.B.3. of the Bylaws shall become effective as of January 1, 2018. These amendments to Article II.B.3. of the Bylaws shall cease to have any force and effect as of December 31, 2019, and the version of paragraph 3 in effect prior to the 2017 annual meeting of the Convention shall be in force and effect as of January 1, 2020, without any further action by the messengers at an annual meeting to amend Article II.B.3. of the Bylaws.
