The proposed changes reflect the differences in the way Affirmation is organized and operating since the bylaws were last altered in October 2005, including:

  • updating the organization's name to the current legal name,
  • adding electronic means of notification to already existing means,
  • the minimum and maximum number of Council members,
  • the way new Council members are elected and the terms they serve,
  • and moving the date of the end of the fiscal year so it does not occur during the quadrennial General Conference of The United Methodist Church.
