This was Executive Council's third meeting of this triennium in this venue, a reflection of a money-saving strategy to contract to meet in a couple of places, Linthicum Heights, MD, and Salt Lake City, UT.

The draft budget for the 2013-2015 triennium overshadowed all the other Executive Council business at this meeting. The budget conversation began at the June 2011 Executive Council meeting, also held at the Maritime Institute, when members were challenged to "change the conversation," to seek a way to take on the adaptive challenges facing all denominations in a post-Christian era of declining interest in the institutional church.

At that time, it was pointed out that the chairs of Executive Council's standing committees had previously not provided much input into the budget process.
