The EC honored Joanne Hendricks, Accounting Services Manager, who retired after serving the BWA for more than 10
years. A plaque was presented to her.
The Officers Search Committee, which has responsibility for proposing the names for BWA president and vice presidents,
informed the meeting that the proposed names will be determined by the end of April and will be presented at the GC
meeting in the Netherlands in July. The election of officers for the BWA will take place during the Baptist World Congress
in Hawaii in 2010, and those elected will serve until 2015.
The International Program Committee for the Baptist World Congress updated executive members on the progress being
made for the 20th congress to be held in Honolulu, Hawaii, July 28-August 1, 2010. A shortlist of speakers has been made.
Topics, writers, and a publisher for the Bible study material, to be used during the congress, have been identified.
The year 2009 marks the 400th anniversary of the founding of the Baptist movement. Both the BWA and the European
Baptist Federation (EBF) will celebrate the event. Executive members were informed that the BWA Annual Gathering in
Ede, Netherlands, to be held July 27 to August 1, will incorporate events to mark the anniversary, while the EBF reminded
the meeting that it will host “Amsterdam 400,” to which all Baptists are invited, and which precedes the BWA meetings.
Amsterdam 400 will be held July 24-26. The first Baptist church was founded in the Netherlands in 1609.
Several other reports were received by the EC, including from each division, department and region of the BWA.
