Guidelines Regarding Content: Reports become part of the historical record of the North Georgia Conference so it is important that your information is timely.

  • Make reports accurate and complete but as concise as feasible in consideration of your purpose, and the readers’ time and the space limitations.
  • Prepare a concise summary report. Reports may be edited for space as needed.
  • Clearly identify any action(s) and/or vote(s) requested of the annual conference
  • Please do not simply update your report from previous handbooks.  Be creative.
  • NOTE: There will not be agency or committee reports made during the annual conference session, so your handbook report is vital to share your ministry with members of the annual conference.
