Yearbook Office Announces Changes

The typical Form B will not be sent to congregations this fall. Instead, it will be combined into a later mailing due to forthcoming changes in the way data will be collected.

The end goal is to reduce the collection of information from multiple forms and mailings to a single mailing that will be sent out early each year. The plan also includes providing an online option for congregations to submit their information— something many congregations have asked for. A paper option will still be available for those who prefer it.

The changes will be implemented over the course of a couple of years, hopefully making the process easier for everyone. More details and instructions will be sent to congregations in early 2019.

Yearbook Specialist Jim Miner says, “We appreciate the time and effort you put into completing these forms each year—a vital way for the church to stay connected. Form B and other forms are used to collect directory and statistical information from congregations. Much of it is published in the annual Church of the Brethren Yearbook.”
