Administrative history

It is the duty of the Conference to meet annually and to appoint a Conference Executive. At the annual meeting, the Conference has the responsibility of determining the number and boundaries of Presbyteries within its bounds, of receiving and considering memorials and petitions with which Conference may or may not concur before forwarding to General Council, ordaining or commissioning Candidates for the Order of Ministry as recommended by Presbytery, admitting to the Order of Ministry diaconal ministers or ordained ministers from other denominations according to the regulations of General Council and insuring, as far as possible, that every Pastoral Charge is served by a pastorate through the operation of a Settlement Committee. The Conference also elects members to the General Council, deals with matters referred to the Conference by General Council, oversees the religious life within the boundaries of the Conference and adopts measures judged necessary for its promotion. Delegates to the annual meeting of Conference include the members of the Order of Ministry on the roll of Presbyteries within the geographical bounds of the Conference and lay persons under appointment to administrative or staff positions within the Conference by a court of the church or the United Church General Council. These are matched by an equal number of lay representatives elected from the Pastoral Charges within the Conference. Chairpersons of Conference Committees and the President of the Conference United Church Women are also members of Conference.(The Manual of The United Church of Canada, 1995, pp. 22-25)
