Responsibilities of Associate Members (80017-MH-¶321)

Amend ¶321 with a new ¶321.3. Existing ¶321.3 becomes ¶321.4
  
¶321.3 Associate members have professional responsibilities that they are expected to fulfill and that represent a fundamental part of their accountability. These shall include:
    a) Continuing availability for appointment.
b) Growth in vocational competence and effectiveness through continuing formation.
c) Annual participation in a process of evaluation with committees on pastor-Parish relations or a comparable body.
d) Annual participation in evaluation with his or her district superintendent.
e) Willingness to assume supervisory and mentoring responsibilities within the connection.

Rationale

This gives clarity to the role and responsibilities of associate members.
