Board of Ordained Ministry – Full Board Meeting
November 13, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Full Board Meeting – Thursday
We will begin promptly at 9 am and end by 5 pm. We will also have lunch together, along with some morning and afternoon snacks. We will begin and end our day with prayer and worship, with a time of Communion to close, but we will try and intersperse our worship and prayer throughout our process. This is important, holy work that we do. Our morning will be a workshop led by Kristina Gonzalez pertaining to “emotional intelligence,” and we’ll talk about what it is/isn’t, how to grow and improve, and how to identify it in others. The afternoon will be time for our different teams to meet (DCOMs with Cabinet reps and Candidacy Registrar, Conference Relations, Formation, Provisional and Full Membership) before our closing time.
Travel & Lodging
The Board will reimburse for travel and lodging costs. If you have costs ahead of time (for those of us flying in from the east), you can submit them ahead of time, but for mileage, parking or lodging receipts, you can submit them at the meeting or subsequently. The process is as follows: You will fully fill out the Conference reimbursement form (on the conference website) with attached receipts, and send that to Jan Bolerjack who serves as our BOM Comptroller. That form is on the Conference website. She then sends that info to the Conference office for them to cut a reimbursement check. Our Conference rules stipulate that we only reimburse $55 per night for hotels, which is possible if you have a roommate. You can search for hotels near the airport or K as needed.
Please let me and know if you have any particular needs related to the facility or meals, or contact their office administrator Jenny Bygland (jbygland@KentMethodist.com)related to the facility or local area. Also, please remember if you bring your own snacks to avoid anything with nuts.
