Proposed Constitutional Amendment #2
“A constitutional amendment to change the clergy requirements under Section VI. Board of Directors of the bylaws from the current requirement of “There shall be a minimum of three (3) clergy on the board” to “There shall be a minimum of two (2) ELCA rostered leaders on the board.”
