2021 Annual Gathering
The 2021 Gathering was held virtually. The attendance report and election results are below.
Thank you for participating in the 2020/2021 NC WELCA Virtual Annual Gathering on Nov. 6th! We appreciate everyone's willingness to pivot to a virtual gathering, which was a huge success!
We had a total of (59) participants at the gathering. There were Voting Members representing (52) Congregational Units, which far exceeded the (40) Congregational Units needed for a Quorum. There were (14) out of (15) Conferences represented with North Coastal being the only Conference not represented.
An additional (5) NC SWO Board Officers and Members with voting privileges attended. Board Officers and Members who have a Voting Member from their home church registered have voting privileges, but do not count towards the Quorum.
There were two guests in attendance - Susan Harris, Gathering Chaplain and Nominee for NC SWO Secretary, and Robin Stuart, Nominee for NC SWO Board. (BTW - Congratulations to both Nominees!)
With your help yesterday morning, our first step towards moving forward with plans and preparations for 2022 has been accomplished! Thanks again for your part in making this happen! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!
