At the Triennial 2014, the various constitutions were changed with the word "delegate" to "voting member". The new model constitution for units is posted below for download in both .pdf and .doc (Word). The .doc version is easy to make specific for your unit by inserting your congregation name in several places and inserting your organizational structure as regards officers, meetings, committees, etc. Constitution samples below will tell you more. Remember to send by mail or email attachment a copy of your updated constitution to the SWO President Phyllis Wade. See the SWO Board list below for her contact information.
Resources for leaders are below including the Leadership Manual updated August, 2013 and forms in August, 2013. Forms in the Leadership Manual appendix, the list of SWO Board Members and Officers, Conference Presidents, SWO Constitution Jan, 2013), and some common forms from the Leadership Manual appendix but individually posted.
