DMYP Membership (81307-DI-¶1207.1c-$)

Amend ¶1207.1c as follows:
    1.    Membership shall be as follows:
                ...
c)    8  10 adult workers with young people—1 adult each from the each central conference regions (Africa, Asia, and Europe),  of Asia and Europe, both appointed by the central conference nominating committee; 1 adult elected from each African central conference;1 adult from each jurisdiction, elected by the jurisdictional conference;  

Rationale

It is a matter of simple justice and fairness to recognize the large and growing numbers of African United Methodists with more adequate representation.  One of the three central conferences in Africa is close in size to the smallest U.S. Jurisdiction and the other two are much larger.
