Memorandum Number 1066


April 27, 2007

Review of Bishop's Decision of Law in the Baltimore-Washington Annual Conference Concerning the Constitutionality of the Plan of Organization for the Annual Conference.

During the 2006 regular session of the Baltimore-Washington Annual Conference, the annual conference adopted a plan of organization. A clergy member requested a ruling of law concerning the constitutionality of the plan of organization. The presiding bishop took the request under advisement and reported his decision pursuant to paragraph 2609.6 of the 2004 Book of Discipline. The Judicial Council is unable to review the bishop's decision because the plan of organization has not been provided. The Judicial Council defers further consideration pending the receipt of the plan of organization as adopted. The secretary of the annual conference is directed to provide a copy of the plan of organization as adopted within thirty days of this memorandum.


Deferred to Fall 2007 Session.

Shamwange P. Kyungu was absent.
