Conference Petitions and Legislation

Below you will find legislation for the Rocky Mountain Conference (RMC), Yellowstone Conference (YAC), and proposed Mountain Sky Conference (MSC). Please download and review the files in preparation for 2018 Joint Annual Conference. In addition, please review the 2018 Joint Annual Conference Petitions and Presenters Guide below.



Petition Numbers
Petitions have been assigned numbers according to the annual conference in which they may be considered during the Joint Annual Conference session in Ogden, Utah, as follows:

  • RMC-xx Rocky Mountain Annual Conference
  • YAC-xx Yellowstone Annual Conference (from RMC Petition Process)
  • YAC-xxx Yellowstone Annual Conference (from YAC Petition Process)
  • MSC-xx Proposed Mountain Sky Annual Conference

Petition Process
No petitions will be considered during the Joint Annual Conference session until Saturday morning, June 9. At that time, petitions related to the proposed Plan of Union will be considered first. The final vote on those petitions will determine which of the petitions submitted to the various annual conferences will be in order for the rest of the session. The Agenda Committee will make that determination and set the order of presentation in consultation with the Bishop.
