1. A NYI Nominating Committee nominates local NYI members to be elected to the NYI Council.
  2. The NYI membership then elects the members of the NYI Council from submitted nominations by majority vote at the annual NYI meeting.
  3. A vacancy occurs when a council member moves his/her membership from the local NYI, resigns, or is removed from office by two-thirds vote of the council due to neglect of duties or inappropriate conduct. Should a vacancy occur among council members, the NYI Council fills the vacancy by two-thirds vote if there is one nominee or by majority vote if two or more nominees.
  4. If a church has fewer than seven NYI members, the pastor may appoint the members of the NYI Council so that youth ministry may be developed and young people are reached for Christ.
