The primary concern of a Conference President and his/her Vice President is to learn and understand everything about governance in a Conference setting. However, the Conference President is also a voting member of a District Council (and possibly a Board of Directors) which means he/she must also be familiar with governance in a District Council setting. This holds true as well for the Vice President who may, at some point in time, stand in for the President.
The Rule and Manual: Every member is expected to have read both documents — not memorized, but familiar with the contents of both and able to search them for needed answers. The Rule, Parts 1 and 3, are most important. The Rule, Part 2 has to do with international operations.
Bylaws: It is most important for leadership and members to be intimately familiar with the specific Bylaws adopted for their Conference and Council. In this case the Conference President must understand the bylaws adopted by his /her Conference as well as those of the District and Diocesan Council to which He/she belongs. If no bylaws were adopted by the Conference, Document 1 is a good starting point to make this happen.
Resolutions: All leadership should be familiar with where these documents are and how to navigate through them.
