How is the number of delegates determined?
The number of delegates is determined by the MidAmerica Bylaws. For congregational delegates, the numbers are the same that the congregation would be entitled to for General Assembly. Ministers in fellowship serving congregations, affiliated ministers, credentialed religious educators, credentialed musicians, and directors of religious education are afforded delegate status by virtue of their position.
How are membership numbers determined for each congregation?
The congregational membership is reported/certified with the UUA in February each year. The number of certified members as reported by February 1, 2016, is used to determine number of delegates for each congregation for this year's Regional Assembly.
