Nominations for Vestry Class of 2026
Each year Trinity’s Nominating Committee, which consists of the Senior Class of Trinity Church’s Vestry, meets to consider names, holds conversations with potential nominees, and prepares a slate of candidates to be approved at the Annual Parish Meeting in November. This year, Doug Scothorn, Dave Hensley, Cissie Stevens, Linda Watt, and I serve on the Nominating Committee.
To serve on the Vestry, the nominee must be:
a baptized and confirmed member of the Episcopal Church
over the age of 18 years of age
a member of the parish for twelve months
an active, pledging member of the parish for at least twelve months before the election
available for the Vestry Retreat on January 5 & 6, 2024.
I cannot stress enough the importance of the parish’s role in providing names of members who are open to serving on the Vestry for the Nominating Committee to consider. I acknowledge that you might think, “I would like to do that, but I am too _____ (fill in the blank).” I thought the same myself. However, I discovered that I had time to serve and that serving on the Vestry has been one of my life's most spiritually fulfilling opportunities. I encourage you to think of individuals to submit or consider submitting your name.
This is an open and welcoming process. Ultimately, the nominating committee will recommend a slate of five candidates to the parish at our Annual Meeting on October 22. The Nominations Committee will begin accepting names from June 1 to August 1, 2023. To submit a name for consideration, complete this form.
If you have any questions, you may contact any member of the Nominating Committee or myself (email@example.com).
