Report Packet

The Report Packet is the workbook for the RC Meeting.  This year’s Report Packet will be available online 1-3 weeks before the meeting.

If you would like your own copy, please indicate that on your registration form and a copy will be provided to you when you register (for a small fee to cover photocopying costs). (Please note, if you do NOT indicate you would like a copy on your registration form, there WILL NOT be one available to you, just the one at your table group):

If you do NOT want to purchase your own copy, there are two other options:
* Print your own copy, or
* Have a computer/tablet/phone and look at it online during the meeting

Each copy will cost $10 payable upon receipt at the registration desk at the meeting. Please give cash or make a cheque payable to: “Canadian Shield Regional Council” (with “2022 RC RP” in the Subject Line).

Proposals

Proposals can be created to be considered by the Regional Council or the Regional Council Executive. A “proposal” is a formal request for the council to take action. It is one way that a United Church member may raise an issue that is important to them and ask for the church to take action on it.

The 2022 Manual, Section F, describes in detail how a proposal may be submitted. The button below also provides a template for creating a proposal. Proposals can be submitted before the Regional Council meeting, to be circulated in the Regional meeting workbook or, a proposal can be submitted to the Agenda and Business table before the scheduled close of submission of new business, during our Regional Meeting. See the CSRC Meeting agenda for specific close of business time (to be available soon).

Deadline for Proposals to the 2022 RCM:  Friday, September 16, 2022
