Annual Meeting May 19, 11:30 am
In accordance with our congregation’s by-laws and the 5th Principle, ASC holds its annual meeting to discuss and pass a budget, elect officers for the upcoming year and do any other business which comes before it. All members who have “signed the book” are encouraged to attend and vote. Friends of the church are welcome to join us for the discussion, but may not vote.
Members are strongly encouraged to attend as this is your best chance to steer the direction our congregation will be taking over the coming year. The various written communications you will be receiving are meant to answer as many questions as possible in advance of the meeting, so please take advantage of them.
To make it easier to attend the May 19 meeting after the morning service, the Board has chosen to provide a bag lunch which can be picked up by all those who fill out and return the lunch order form. We would also like to know how many members will need childcare in order to attend.
To further prepare for the meeting there will be a budget discussion and preview at 11:30 on the previous Sunday, May 12. The budget will be distributed by e-mail and snail mail in advance of the meetings.
The Annual Report will also be sent out by e-mail, however due to the cost of mailing a 30 page document, we will be mailing it only to those who request it because they can not pick it up at church. There will be a check list next to the stack of reports. Please check off your name if you take one.
An official warning will be mailed out in advance of the meeting, as will directions for appointing a proxy to vote for you if you can not attend. LH
