- Those same delegates can also vote in the jurisdictional and central conferences following GC 2024.
- The number and allocation of delegates among annual conferences remains unchanged from what the General Conference commission determined for GC 2020.
- Legislation already properly submitted to the coming General Conference will not need to be resent.
