The Manual of The United Church of Canada stipulates that each Pastoral Charge shall have one Official Board that meets quarterly or more frequently as necessary. Duties of the Official Board include submitting annual reports to the Congregation or Charge; completing annual statistical reports; the election of representatives to Presbytery; to secure contributions and authorise loans to support the work of the Charge; to communicate with the Presbytery on matters of the Pastoral Relationship; to give direction to the Trustees in matters of property; to represent the Charge at meetings of Presbytery; and to attend to matters that involve the joint interests of the Session, the Committee of Stewards, and the Board of Trustees or any two of them. Membership of the Official Board may consist of members of the Order of Ministry settled on the Charge or the Presbytery Charge Supervisor, the members of the Session(s), the members of the Committee(s) of Stewards, the Chairs of the Ministry and Personnel Committee and the Stewardship Committee, the lay representatives to Presbytery, and one representative in full membership from the departments of Board of Trustees, the Christian Education Committee, the Sunday School, the Youth Organisation, the Men's Organisation, and the UCW or other women's group of each Charge or Congregation.
