Ellen White, recently back from Australia, stood up at the GC Session in Battle Creek and urged that the Administrative structure of the church be modified.
The goal was to increase the effectiveness of the church in ministry, move decision making out of the GC office then in Battle Creek and closer to the front line. The most significant action in was perhaps the organization of Union Conferences.
Originally the 'State' conferences had joined together to form the General Conference.
