The Committee on Nominations report follows the BSCNC 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 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 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.”
