For the past 15 months, a task force has been reviewing and making revisions to the constitution of the Heartland Conference.  This was in response to a goal established by the Conference to provide clarity and simplicity to the organizational structure and operation. 

We are sharing the draft of the proposed substitute constitution with you and invite your questions and comments.  Over the next month we want to invite input so that what is ultimately put before the membership for approval has been vetted and is reflective of the membership. 

The task force welcomes comments and questions about the revisions.  Please feel free to share your observations and concerns in one of the following ways:

• Email to Rev. David Plant, chair of the task force at

• Participation in one of the Zoom discussion sessions:

May 15th, 7:00 pm 

May 18th, 3:00 pm

May 24th, 7:00 pm

June 3rd, 9:00 am

For the Zoom link, email the Heartland Conference Office at

The task force will consider the input, make revisions where appropriate, and submit it to the Board of Directors for approval in June.  The final approved substitute constitution will be submitted to the membership in June so that it meets the required notification period to be considered at the Annual Gathering on September 29-30, 2023.

Due to the complexity of the process for making changes to the constitution, it is important that your valued input is shared at this time. The links above provide access to all of the pertinent documents for your consideration. We look forward to your response to these efforts to update the Heartland Conference constitution.
