The LCMS Board of Directors met for its sixth regular meeting of the 2013–2016 triennium on Nov. 7-8, 2014, in St. Louis, Mo. The use of a “consent agenda” again expedited the board’s conduct of its business by including routine matters that require board action under a single resolution adopted at the beginning of the meeting.
Other business addressed by the board during the November meeting included:
- An executive session joint meeting with the Concordia University System Board of Directors to discuss school issues;
- The ratification of a new Special Assistant to the President staff position for the Office of the President;
- The designation of the Chief Administrative Officer as “Convention Manager” until Bylaw 3.1.9 can be revised (designates the Director of General Services to serve as convention manager, a position no longer in existence);
- A change to the board’s meeting schedule to move its November meetings to again coincide with the annual Fall Leadership Conference of the Lutheran Church Extension Fund—Missouri Synod.
