Executive Committee




Duties
 —Between meetings of the Lake Union Constituency, the Lake Union Executive Committee has administrative power to act on behalf of the constituency. The Lake Union Executive Committee appoints Union leaders and committees, fills vacancies, grants and withdraws credentials and licenses, and transacts such executive business as is in harmony with Union, Division, and General Conference policies. The Lake Union Executive Committee meets three times each year: February, May, and November.

Membership —Some people are members of the executive committee automatically because they have been elected to certain positions of leadership in the Lake Union. These positions include the Union officers, vice president and associate treasurer, local Conference presidents and one officer, Andrews University president, and the president of Adventist Midwest Health. 
In addition, additional representation is selected from the field giving careful attention to making sure the committee includes ethnic, gender, geographic, and lay/pastor balance.
