Committee on Nominations Report
    September 30 2011 by BSC Communications

    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 (Baptist State Convention of North Carolina – BSC) Board of Directors and committees of the Convention 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 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.

    In 2011 there were situations in which the number of recommendations for a place of service outnumbered the vacancies; and there were situations in which the converse was also true. However, the committee has worked diligently in both cases to review and recommend individuals who we believe will best serve North Carolina Baptists.

    The full report from the Committee on Nominations can be found on the BSC’s annual meeting website, in the edition of the Biblical Recorder dated Oct. 1, 2011, 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 2012 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.

    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.
