Mandatory Director of Communications (81294-IC-¶608)

Amend ¶608
  
It is recommended that  There shall be in each annual conference or episcopal area have a director of communications to focus and guide the communications ministry of The United Methodist Church within the annual conference or episcopal area.

Rationale

By mandating this position, communications ministry will be enhanced, thereby increasing our witness to both the church and the world. In addition, ¶645 mandates a Commission on Communications. Providing a conference staff person for that commission would empower its ministry and increase its effectiveness.
