Notice to AMD members: 
The members of the UMAMD committee on nominations wishes to extend to The Rev. Dr. Robert Walker, our sincere gratitude for the hours of skillful time and dedication he gave to the Association of Ministers With Disabilities, both serving as editor of the book Speaking Out, and serving as chair of the association's social action committee. As such, Bob spent many hours helping the committee to revise and distribute petitions for the 2016 general conference. We are pleased to let you know that, upon Robert Walker's resignation as chair of the social action committee, due to age and personal concerns, The Rev. Evy McDonald, a retired elder, has agreed to serve as the chair of the social action committee.
If you have any objection or prefer to submit another name for consideration, please contact one or both of the Association co-chairs, Rev. Russel Ewell or Rev. Janine Delaunay. If no comments are received by January 25, 2017, Evy shall be elected by acclamation.
The nominating committee is considering that all the officers who were elected at our last meeting in Dallas in 2015 are willing to remain in the offices to which they were elected. If not, PLEASE contact, The Rev. Nancy Webb, chair of the nominating committee, at 1-410-444-7222 or
Annual dues of $25 are due to Greg Edwards, treasurer, United Methodist Association of Ministers with Disabilities,
1955 Chevy Chase Lane, Beaumont TX 77706, during the month of January 2017.
