Nominations for AMRY District Lay Member-at-Large for Annual Conference 2019

A Lay Member-at-Large serves along with local church members who have been or will be elected by their individual churches to serve as its member to Annual Conference. At-Large Lay Members cannot be simultaneously serving as Lay Members elected by their church charge conferences or as At-Large Lay Members, serving the conference by other offices they hold (such as chairs of Conference Teams, Boards and Agencies), as the intent is to have more people able to participate, rather than having one person serve multiple roles.

In nominating yourself or other persons to serve as a Lay Member-at-Large for our Annual Conference, please note that the nominee should meet the following criteria:

  • Is an active and prayerful disciple of Jesus Christ

  • Meets all the disciplinary requirements to be a member of the Annual Conference

  • Is an active member of the United Methodist Church in our Atlanta-Emory district

  • Is willing to serve the Annual Conference in the role as a Lay Member-at-Large

Nominations should be completed at the following website: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NGUMC_AC_2019.  This survey may be completed on a computer, tablet or smart phone.  After you complete the survey by pressing the “DONE” button at the bottom of the survey, it will automatically be submitted to the review team.  You no longer need to submit a paper form to the district office.

Please let me know if there is anything I may do for you.  My email address is RJGilleo@gmail.com.

Robert Gilleo, AMRY District Lay Leader
