Add ¶545.3 as follows:
  
3. The secretary of each central conference shall submit a hardcopy of every translation and adaptation of the general Discipline or portion thereof in use in that central conference to the General Commission on Archives and History.  

Rationale

While central conferences have the authority to adapt, revise, and augment the general Discipline to their own contexts, these publications are not currently found in the denominational archive, hindering communication throughout our connection. This petition is meant to promote cross-cultural communication and to strengthen relationships within the UMC.
