Voting Delegates Congregational Delegates

Every affiliated congregation in good standing is entitled to a specific number of delegates who can vote at the meeting. The number of delegates is determined by number of congregation members. Each congregation may send as many participants to the conference as desired, but only the delegates accredited on the Web site will be able to vote. All conference participants including delegates should complete a Registration to attend the Annual Conference.

Procedure for accrediting congregational delegates:

The congregation should select its delegates according to its bylaws. The deadline has passed for naming delegates online. Please send your delegates to the Conference with a letter signed by an officer or minister of the congregation stating the name of the congregation and the names of the delegates. This letter can be presented at the delegate sign-in section of the Conference registration desk. Fellowshipped, settled, and interim ministers are automatically delegates. Please do not list them with the delegates selected by the congregation. People who will be delegates should also register like other conference participants. (The accreditation process above does not do that; it merely identifies who the voting delegates are.) Delegates who have been accredited on the Web site must also sign in at the Registration table at the Conference before 7:30 AM on Saturday, April 24, 2010 to show that they are in attendance. They will then be given a sticker for their name badge indicating that they are entitled to vote and a hardcopy of the PSD Annual Report. NOTE: The sign-in deadline is early Saturday morning. Delegates who have not been listed on the web site by the April 20, deadline must bring to the conference a letter signed by the minister or an officer of their congregation stating the name of the congregation and the names of the delegates. Additional Delegates

There are two other groups of delegates:

Ordained, fellowshipped, settled, and interim ministers and ministers emeritus are entitled to be delegates (in addition to the delegates selected by congregations). Members of the PSD Board of Directors are also entitled to be delegates.

Procedure for additional delegates:

There will not be paper credentials for these delegates, and their names should not be listed with the congregational delegates. Persons who are delegates by their ministerial or Board member status should sign in at the Conference before 7:30 AM on Saturday, April 24, 2010 to show they are in attendance and will be given a sticker for their name badge indicating they are entitled to vote. All conference participants including delegates should complete a Registration to attend the Annual Conference.
