2017-2020 Vision Table

The Vision Table is organized to carry out the functions of the Northeastern Jurisdiction in the broad areas of visioning, strategic planning, and coordination of resources. The Vision Table may form task forces or other groups to help with these tasks.

The Vision Table is comprised of three bishops and two persons from each annual conference, one being the director of Connectional Ministries. Membership includes the chair or designee of Program and Arrangements, Episcopacy Committee, Board of Ordained Ministry, Annual Conference Boundaries, Rules, and Board of Laity. In addition there are two youth, two young adults, the jurisdictional secretary and the jurisdictional treasurer. There are also three members nominated and elected to assure diversity. The assistant secretary and assistant treasurer of the Jurisdiction attend the meetings with voice but no vote.
