Petitions/recommendations to be considered at the 2017 Pacific Northwest Annual Conference Session need to be submitted to the PNW Conference Office by April 15. Resolutions submitted by this date will be reviewed by the Director of Connectional Ministries for consideration at a joint gathering of the Connectional Table and the Council on Finance and Administration on May 19. At that meeting, individuals submitting legislation may also be invited to participate. Alternatively, legislation may be directed to a conference board or agency, after consultation with the author, for direct action by that group. Conference staff may also be in contact to assist in clarifying the petitions intent or to offer other forms of assistance.
