Every year the Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota Conferences of the United Church of Christ (UCC) gather to make important decisions regarding their ministry, business, and future. It is also an important time for us to learn, grow, and celebrate! Depending on the year the three Conferences gather separately or all together.
Each congregation is entitled to representation and is allowed a certain number of voting delegates at the Annual Meeting of each conference. To learn more and to calculate the number of voting delegates allowed from your congregation, read the follow section of your conference’s bylaws.
