Other Rules Pertaining to the District Assemblies. The district assembly may authorize, where civil law permits, the District Advisory Board to incorporate. After incorporation as above provided, the District Advisory Board shall have power, on its own resolution, to purchase, own, sell, exchange, mortgage, deed in trust, hypothecate, lease, and convey any property, real and personal, as may be necessary or convenient for the purpose of the corporation. (222.5)


As far as possible membership of district boards and committees shall be equal between ministers and laypersons unless specifically provided otherwise by the Manual.


The district superintendents of Phase 1 and Phase 2 districts shall be chosen in accordance with paragraph 200.2. A Phase 2 district may revert to Phase 1 district status until such time as it can meet the requirements for Phase 2 status.


When the presiding officer of a district assembly deems that it is impossible to convene or continue with the business of the district assembly, and therefore postpones, cancels, or adjourns the district assembly, the general superintendent in jurisdiction, in consultation with the Board of General Superintendents, shall appoint all district officers not elected prior to the adjournment of the district assembly to serve for a period of one year.
