Nominations will be accepted on the "floor" of laity session

Though Nickell and Richard have both submitted their forms as nominees to be elected as the Oregon-Idaho Conference Lay Leader, per Conference rules, nominations will be accepted from the "floor" of the laity session - in this case from the Zoom webinar where the meeting will be held. Details on how to get recognized and how voting will occur will be made known to Annual Conference lay members during the session.
