A surprising agenda

I got a copy of the agenda for my church's annual meeting, which will be held this Sunday, and was surprised to see that I was on it, twice. It seems I'll be speaking on behalf of the nominating committee, which I had agreed to do but had forgotten about, and presenting the Deacon highlights, which was news to me. I guess that writing that article for the last newsletter made me the spokesman.

The nominating committee bit, that shouldn't be too hard. Introduce the committee, thank the congregation for their suggestions and the people we asked but declined to be nominated, and announce the nominees. Badda bing, badda boom, nothing to it. I should probably review the list of nominees at some point, since off the top of my head I can only remember eight of the 11 people on the slate.

I'll need to do a little work on the Deacons part, though. Look through the minutes, compile some statistics, remind myself which of the members are stepping down, that sort of thing. Details are important, because our activities and responsibilities rarely change, and I think they probably want a more report that's more substantial than, "We did the same things we did last year."
