Nominations to the boards, commissions and committees of the NC Conference will be approved at the Annual Conference session in June. The process of self-nomination allows lay and clergy members of the United Methodist Church in the bounds of the NC Conference to select an area of interest for service. The vacancies in the boards, commissions and committees are posted on the Connectional Ministries Nominations page, as well as, the Nomination form. It is always the hope of the Nominating Committee that lay members of our churches will offer themselves for service in the Conference, and we desire inclusivity among the Conference committees. Some travel is required, as most of the groups meet about 4 times a year, although some meetings may occur by conference call or web-based communication. The deadline for Nominations will be extended to Friday, March 26, to allow time for clergy and lay members to complete the online application.
