In this study an analysis had been made of the Executive Board of the Arkansas Baptist State Convention. The investigation was limited to eight specific problems. The problems discussed are: (1) composition of the Board, (2) requisites for membership on the Board, (3) women on the Board, (4) personnel of the Board, (5) organization of the Board, (6) meetings of the Board, (7) duties of the Board, and (8) report of the Board.
In the examination of these problems an attempt was made to discover and to present relevant factual information derived from available primary sources.
Due to the nature of the organization of the Arkansas Baptist State Convention it was necessary to elect and to empower a small group of trustees to have control of the work of the Convention in the interval between annual sessions. Thus, the Convention organized an administrative body officially entitled the Executive Board, and charged it with the responsibility of serving as the Convention ad interim.
