The Pacific Union Conference Constituency Session begins at 6:00pm on Sunday, August 15, 2020, not August 16, as was announced in the June Recorder. Registration begins at 2pm.
The complete Constituency Session notice is as follows:
Pacific Union Conference Constituency Session
The 31st session of the Pacific Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists will be held at the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Hotel and Spa, Tucson, Arizona , August 15 and 16, 2021. The first meeting of the business session will be called at 6:00 p.m., August 15. Registration will begin at 2:00 p.m. Delegates are selected by the local conferences according to the terms of the Pacific Union Bylaws. This session is called to receive reports from the officers and various departments, to elect personnel for the ensuing term, to consider revisions in the Bylaws, and to transact any other business that may properly come before the delegates. This session is called as a special session under the Union’s Bylaws. The business items addressed above are normally conducted in a regular session every five years, but a regular session cannot be held on the preplanned August 2021 dates because of a provision in Union Bylaws that ties the date of the Union’s regular session to the calendar year after the General Conference regular session. As of the time of this publication, the General Conference regular session has been delayed at least two years, which would delay the Union’s regular session to 2023 at the earliest. Believing it is in the interests of the Union and its constituents to conduct the above-referenced business in a timely manner, this meeting is called by the Pacific Union Conference Executive Committee as a special session, and appropriate Bylaws amendments are presented to ensure all necessary business can be properly accomplished at the meeting. Please review the materials provided with this notice describing proposed amendments to the Bylaws. (See pp. 65-67.) Motion number 1 provides amendments that allow all necessary business to be conducted at the upcoming special session. Motion number 2 provides other amendments the Bylaws Committee recommends to the Union.
