Voting Members



Is your unit entitled to send a voting member formerly called a delegate to the SWO Fall Gathering?

Membership in the Florida-Bahamas Synodical Women’s Organization requires a Unit to submit its constitution or an Affirmation of Membership form to the SWO and to support the SWO through regular offerings. In order to be considered an active unit and to have a voting member at the SWO Fall Gathering at Lake Yale on November 10-12, 2017, all church units must have a constitution that has been updated since 2014 OR an Affirmation of Membership on file with the SWO VIce-President by October 1, 2017. If your constitution has not been updated since 2014, check the constitution models below to see the additions voted upon at the 2008 and 2014 Triennial that should be added to yours.  There are .doc and .pdf versions below. The content is the same. Your unit name and other particulars can be easily put in the doc version and then printed. These can also be used by new units. Also, these same forms of the approved Model Constitution and Bylaws for the Congregational or Intercongregational Unit are located at www.womenoftheelca.org. Look under Tools for Leaders.
 
The Affirmation of Membership is attached below with complete information as well.

Please contact SWO Vice-President Tracy Moffatt by email at tracymoffatt@aol.com  or by phone if you need to determine whether your unit has an updated constitution or Affirmation of Membership on file. Your updated constitution or the Affirmation of Membership should be sent to the SWO Vice-President.
 
Offerings should be submitted to SWO Treasurer.
 
Each congregation will receive a voting member letter and credential form in the Fall Gathering mailing. The form is below to be downloaded with the arrow on the far right.  Use the.docx form if you wish to add your information before printing or use the.pdf to print first and write in.  Remember the voting member also needs to register for the Fall Gathering. Those forms are on the main Fall Gathering page after Aug.13.
 
A voting member manual will be provided at Fall Gathering.  Later, additional information such as nominees and resolutions will be posted below for review but copies will be provided at the Fall Gathering.  Voting members do not need to print these.
