From the Book of Discipline (¶5200):

Each annual conference shall elect a standing administrative committee (Board of Administration) of not less than four members, giving due regard to clergy/lay balance. It shall act as the standing administrative committee of the conference in the interim between annual conference sessions to care for routine business and items specifically delegated to it by the conference within the limits of the Book of Discipline(see ¶6400).

The conference administrative committee shall give strategic planning attention to such ministries as world missions, Christian discipleship, church planting and social action. It may assign individuals, form task forces and create standing committees to carry out the ministries deemed appropriate for the health and growth of the church.

BOA Committee Structure

Categorically, the following four areas are standing committees of the BOA that adapt to meet the identified needs of the area over time recruiting involvement from the greater conference for expertise.

Essential Investment

Missional Leaders, Vital Churches, Kingdom Expansion
The top three strategic priorities of the FMCSC can be categorized as areas of essential investment for health, growth and development of leaders, churches, and initiatives.

Expected Outcomes

Transformed Community, Global Mission, Justice & Creation Care
These three strategic priorities of the FMCSC can be categorized as areas of expected outcome that naturally flow from the areas of essential investment.

Governance & Ethics

The BOA itself must intentionally address areas of best practice, internal resourcing, and not for profit board legalities.  The resources once developed also need to be shared with local church boards through accessible training and with appropriate accountability.

Initiative Development & Resourcing

The California Coast initiative, the Center for Transformational Leadership, and the Internship Program, require that the FMCSC target effective fund raising, grant seeking, marketing, and infrastructure for healthy growth and implementation of these efforts.

BOA Task Forces

These are temporary committees organized around a specific need or opportunity within the conference.  The committee purpose, authority, and time frame will be established by the BOA and the committee will automatically be disbanded when the objective is accomplished.  For Example:

Scholarship Committee Redevelopment

Review and repurpose educational scholarships, applications, and process in keeping with the new objectives with the Center for Transformational Leadership.

Center for Transformational Leadership

Work with Lead Superintendent to identify and develop a Center Board, communication structure, and implementation plan.
