DISTRICT APPORTIONMENT: Revising the wording of district officer

Whereas, The Discipline provides that the district secretary is responsible to communicate the annual apportionment of the USF to each local church; and

Whereas, the responsibility to communicate the annual apportionment of USF to each church may be fulfilled by a variety of officials including the district superintendent, district secretary, or district treasurer; and

Whereas, many districts include the annual apportionment in district conference materials subject to conference approval;

Resolved, That Discipline paragraph 2015(2) be amended to provide for notification by a district official as assigned by the district superintendent. Paragraph 2015(2) shall then read:

(2) District Apportionment. The district conference shall apportion its total obligation among the local churches under its jurisdiction by assigning an amount to each as its share of the USF-General Fund and the USF-Educational Institutions Fund respectively, under whatever plan the district conference shall adopt after receiving a recommendation from the district board of administration (1233:11; 1337:6). Each local church shall be promptly notified of the amount assigned by the district as assigned by the district superintendent. The district treasurer shall promptly notify the General Treasurer/Chief Financial Officer of the district USF obligation on forms provided by the General Treasurer/Chief Financial Officer (1337:6).
