Percentage Under 30 (81522-CO-¶502.1)

Add to ¶502.1 as follows:
   c) No fewer than 20 percent of all elected delegates to the General Conference must be youth or young adults between the ages of 12 and 30.

Rationale

As a growing part of The United Methodist Church, it is important that youth and young adults have a part in the administration of this organization. Ensuring that 20 percent of the elected delegates to General Conference be 30 or younger helps provide young people with a voice.
