(Jewell suggested that coming with this idea after the budget has been discussed, rather than being a part of the budget process was not a good idea. Kim clarified that she told people they could bring a late budget idea to the annual meeting.)
I missed the annual meeting my apologies
but I would like to make a point of clarification that I learned this from Larry Gardner. When I was pres and treasurer both. He really knew how to defend out members rights and duties. I miss him.
1 Calvary by the sea is a membership organization. Advised by the council
2 the process for an annual meeting for a membership organization is that everything is open for discussion that is the point the joy the wonder of our system
3. Preparation for an annual congregational meeting the following things USUALLY happen
For a budget for example
