Amend the Main Motion REJECTED 246-599
I move to amend ¶ 15 by inserting the words "Episcopal Area"  after the phrase annual conferences, missionary conferences and the provisional annual conferences, wherever it appears.
Then add a  new paragraph -  
Delegates shall be elected from the conferences of the Episcopal area on a proportional basis of membership in the conferences.  In the Episcopal Areas that have more conferences than delegates, the Episcopal area shall establish a fair process for rotating the delegates between the annual conferences therein and shall communicate the same to the secretary of the General Conference.
