A special annual conference session was held Saturday, January 29, through Zoom webinar. The sole purpose of this conference was to vote on the funding mechanism for the Virginia Annual Conference’s commitment to the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) settlement. Details were outlined in a letter from Bishop Sharma D. Lewis on Jan. 21, 2022.
After a time of presentations, questions and answers, a vote was taken on a motion brought before the conference by the Council on Finance and Administration (see below). Option 1 was approved which states the entire $988,456 will be paid 100 percent from conference reserves in 2022.
