Regional Conferences (81546-CO-¶39-C)

Amend ¶39 by addition and deletion
Changes in the number, names, and boundaries of the jurisdictional  regional conferences may be effected by the General Conference upon the consent of a majority of the annual conferences of each of the jurisdictional  regional conferences involved. The General Conference shall have the authority to establish regional conferences where no such conference exists, but if this includes changing the boundaries of one or more existing regional conferences then it requires the consent of a majority of the annual conferences of each regional conference involved.

Rationale

Puts boundary changes for jurisdictional and central conferences on the same basis. Requires that the General Conference may only change the boundaries of an existing regional conference with the consent of a majority of its annual conferences.
