So, with regard to the officer discussion. As I’ve mentioned here in the comments a few times. There was a lot of confusion around this. The timing of past recent events did not help the matters when the bylaws committee suggested these changes. The rationale for explanation was horrible. The chair should not have been responding to the delegates questions regarding bylaw committee changes, that was the responsibility of the chair of the bylaws committee, then serving vp for administration. Lastly, the failure of union leadership, whom are delegates-at-large to get up and speak to the changes was radiant in nonexistence. All around, saying it a failure, would be a putting it lightly.
All of that said, the need to the change is necessary, as it does bring the bylaws in-alignment with general church operating practices. In a nut shell here is how:
The church generally has three executive officers. These are the president, secretary (now generally being labelled the vice president for administration), and treasurer (again, now generally being called the vice president for finance or chief financial officers). Dependent on the church entity/body, there may be additional vice presidents, or officers, This is not always a given. This is why these other vice presidents are not classified as ‘executive’ officers. They still have voice and vote in executive committees, administration committees (ADCO/M) and still report directly to the executive committee.
