Lay equalization is the process by which the conference balances the number of voting lay persons with the number of clergy members (with vote). The process is explained in Conference Rules IV.A (2023 Journal Section I). Calculations are based on local church membership as of December 31, 2022 as reported in Table 1, line 4 and clergy membership as of February 1, 2024.

The full report on Lay Equalization is available online by clicking here.
