<h2><span style='font-size:10.0pt'>DUTIES OF THE NOMINATING COMMITTEE</span></h2>

<p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:10.0pt'>&nbsp;</span></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:10.0pt'>The Nominating Committee will
nominate Officers of the Meeting, the Clerk of Ministry and Oversight and the
members of M &amp; O, Meeting representatives to IMYM committees and the
Meeting�s Joint Service Representative,.&nbsp; Those nominations will be given
a first reading at Business Meeting, followed by a month of thoughtful
consideration, and then a second reading.&nbsp; Nominees will assume their
office upon the second reading.&nbsp; M &amp; O members serve staggered
two-year terms.</span></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:10.0pt'>&nbsp;</span></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:10.0pt'>The Nominating Committee will
confer with clerks of standing committees to find out who is willing to remain
on each committee. The Nominating Committee will nominate first conveners for
each of the meeting�s standing committees, and report such nominations to
Business Meeting.&nbsp; There will be no further formal acceptance
process.&nbsp;First conveners and members of the committee agreeing to continue
service will undertake to secure additional members for their committee with
the assistance of the Nominating Committee.&nbsp; Nominees in this category
will serve one-year terms.&nbsp;&nbsp;Committees will report changes in their
committee membership through their monthly report to Business Meeting.&nbsp;
All standing committees (except M &amp; O) are open to anyone who wishes to
join at any time.</span></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:10.0pt'><br>
Business Meeting will appoint members to ad hoc committees.&nbsp; Nominating
Committee will be asked to fill Officer, IMYM, AFSC and M &amp; O vacancies as
they occur during the year.</span></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:10.0pt'><br>
The nomination process will be considered closed as of June of each year
(excepting vacancies as described above).&nbsp; After nominations close in
June, the Nominating Committee will name a Naming Committee&nbsp;to be accepted
by Business Meeting after a first and second reading.&nbsp; The Naming
Committee will name the next year�s Nominating Committee by February each year.
&nbsp;</span></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:10.0pt'>&nbsp;</span></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:10.0pt'>Meeting suggests the
Nominating Committee begin the nominating process with general encouragement to
consider service to the meeting and a request that interested people contact
the Nominating Committee.&nbsp; Next (ideally) each member and
attender&nbsp;might receive a call or an email, with specific suggestions as to
work they might consider.&nbsp; A follow-up call might come next.&nbsp;Lastly,
if positions remain unfilled, a request to give specific service could be
made.&nbsp;In short, the process should be combination of all the above
approaches to gathering nominees.</span></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:10.0pt'>&nbsp;</span></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:10.0pt'>Meeting requests that the
Nominating Committee make an effort during its process to contact all meeting
members and attenders.&nbsp;Meeting believes that this contact is essential to
maintaining active members and attenders.</span></p>
