International Staffing (81301-GA-¶714)

Amend ¶714 by adding as subparagraph #11:  Staffing of general agencies shall reflect the international diversity of The United Methodist Church.  Counsel from central conference members of general agencies shall be sought in this goal.

Rationale

Over 30 percent of The United Methodist Church’s membership is now outside the U.S., most of it in Africa.  The staffing of general agencies of our church should reflect the membership of our church.
