This information is required by the PC(USA) General Assembly and the Synod of the Covenant:
1. Do you have a Committee on Representation (COR) established in accordance with G-9.0105a? If yes, indicate the makeup of your Committee on Representation:
Majority Male Majority Female Racial Ethnic Male Racial Ethnic Female
Number: 2 Number: 1 Number: 2 Number: 3
Youth MaleNumber: 0 Youth FemaleNumber: 0 With Disability Number: 1
If no, how are the functions constitutionally assigned to the COR implemented?
How often did your committee meet during the past 12 months?
Was that number adequate to fulfill your tasks?
3. How has the primary function of advising your presbytery been fulfilled “with respect to its membership and to that of its committees, boards, agencies, and other units in implementing the principles of participation and inclusiveness to ensure fair and effective representation in the decision making of the Church”? (G-9.0105b) There is a representative attending the Nominating Committee meeting as well as, a Nominating Committee representative attending the COR meeting. A member of COR would like to attend a Council meeting within the year.
4. How has the responsibility of consulting with the Nominating Committee of your presbytery been fulfilled? (G-9.0105c) More attention is being paid to racial ethnic and theological diversity on all committees, but we do not have solid representation with youth and young adults.
5. What racial ethnic caucuses or other constituencies (including racial ethnic members, sessions, women’s constituencies, nominating committee, etc.) have been consulted in the past year to discover potential nominees from among racial ethnic persons, women, persons with disabilities, and youth? (G-9.0105d) Racial Ethnic Churches and the National Black Presbyterian Caucus have been asked. Not much has been done as far as youth and the disabled.
