At every General Conference (GC) Session, a nominating committee is selected to choose the names for GC president, secretary, treasurer, and general vice presidents. As the week continues, the nominating committee splits into division caucuses and selects names to fill division-specific roles. Drawn from all the world divisions, along with other GC institutions, more than half of the members are union presidents. The committee meets privately during the business sessions and holds significant influence over the direction of the church. For 2022, the session nominating committee has 268 members.
