Executive Leadership Team
The Executive Leadership Team is the highest governing body between sessions of the US National Conference. The ELT meets twice a year.
The US National Conference elects eight of the members, including one layperson and one minister from each of the four geographic regions. They are elected to four-year terms, but the terms are staggered, so that the terms of half of the members expire every two years.
The bishop then nominates, and the ELT appoints, four members at large–again, one from each region, with two ministers and two laypersons. These persons are appointed to two-year terms. The appointee is the third person listed with each region on the left.
