Council of Boards (General Conference Mennonite Church)
Council of Boards was an annual union meeting of all boards and elected committees of the General Conference Mennonite Church to provide clearance for common problems, to review the work of the Conference, and to decide on budgets of the various boards and committees. This Council included, in addition to the members of the boards and committees, the officers of the General Conference and the presidents of the District Conferences. The Council convened annually for a number of days, before the end of the fiscal year. After the General Conference merged with the Mennonite Church (MC) to form Mennonite Church USA this practice no longer continued.
