    about

    Conference Leadership Team (CLT)

    The Conference Leadership Team (CLT) is the steward of the mission and vision of United Methodists of Upper New York (UNY). The resident bishop convenes the team with the Director of Missional Excellence.

    The essential functions of the CLT include;

    • Provide missional clarity and alignment within the UNY, regions, and districts to achieve the primary task and missional objectives.
    • Consider the missional questions that allow UNY to articulate and implement its strategies to increase faithfulness and fruitfulness.
    • Create an environment for healthy accountability.
    • Serve as the executive body of UNY between conference sessions, pursuant to the Book of Discipline ¶ 610
    • In consultation with the extended cabinet, it can also act on behalf of the Upper New York Conference.

    The CLT meets at least quarterly in person or online.
