To: Rocky Mountain Conference

From: Bill Dodge
      RMC Nominating Committee

Re: Draft RMC Nominating Committee Report

       The RMC Nominating Committee is pleased to provide you with a draft report on
nominations for the RMC Board and Ministry Teams. Thanks to those individuals who have
offered to serve on these important groups.

       As you can read, there are still a number of open positions to be filled at the RMC
Annual Conference in Salt Lake City. Please consider nominating members of your
congregation, or yourself. Please pass on your nominations to the member of the Nominating
Committee from your association or to me. A list of the Nominating Committee members is also
attached.

        Finally, as you are probably aware, there will be discussion and possible action on
realigning three of our RMC associations. Do not let these potential changes deter your interest
and candidacy for the RMC Board and Ministry Teams. The Nominating Committee is
confident that any interest in serving will be honored.

      Many, many thanks for your efforts and we look forward to participating with you in Salt
Lake City.
                                                                        Draft 4/30/11
