NEC Constitution - Home
The NEC Session was initially scheduled to be held from Wednesday 23 to Friday 25 September 2020. However, due to the COVID 19 pandemic it was rescheduled to Wednesday 8 to Friday 10 September 2021. In the short period of the Session a great deal of business needs to be conducted, including:
  • Appointing a recommendation committee
  • Appointing a nominating committee
  • Hearing various reports
  • Voting new officers
  • Voting new executive committee members
  • Voting new departmental directors
  • Voting new credentials and licences for the next quadrennium
  • Approving a strategic plan
These are just some of the main items of business. For more information about the responsibilities of role of the session and its delegates see Church Manual - Conference Sessions.pdf.
One crucial matter that must be dealt with is the adoption of a new constitution. The current constitution dates back to 2012 and now must be updated to bring us in to line with UK charity law and the General Conference Model Conference Constitution.
The proposed new NEC Constitution was approved by the NEC Executive Committee on 11 August 2021. The information was shared with the NEC Session delegates and with with wider public via the NEC and BUC websites on 11 August 2021. This is within the 28-day notice period required by the constitution (Article 19(a)(i)) for any proposed changes. The purpose of this website is to guide you through the process of how the proposed new NEC Constitution was developed, so that as many questions as possible can be answered before the session itself.
