A major function of the upcoming Constituency Session will be to elect the three Conference Officers; the Vice President for Multicultural Ministry, the Departmental Directors, 24 members of the Executive Committee, the governing body of SWRC; and the eight Bylaws Committee Members for the next term.
The Seventh-day Adventist denomination has a representative form of governance and the conference nominating committee is very similar to the local church nominating committee. The process allows for every church in the SWRC to participate in the decision of who is elected to serve. Nominations will come from the nominating committee to the delegate floor of the SWRC Constituency Session on September 23-24, 2023 for a vote by all delegates present.
SWRC Bylaws give clear direction as to the process and procedure for the selecting of the nominating committee and the function of that committee.

The first meeting of the Nominating Committee took place on Sunday, August 20, 2023, and will reconvene at the SWRC Constituency Session.
