2020 Vestry & Junior Warden - last call for candidate suggestions
Please submit suggestions for candidates for Vestry and Warden to the Nominating Committee no later than Saturday, January 25.
Ted Bahr has been appointed to chair the Nominating Committee for the 2020 Vestry elections, which includes nominating three new Vestry members and the next Junior Warden of St. John's. The Nominating Committee members are: current Vestry members Billy Wresch and Nancy Cashin; and Trudy Calabrese and Joanna Bradford.
The Committee welcomes suggestions for candidates from members of the parish. The requirements to be considered for a three-year term on the Vestry include: those persons of full age (age 18) or more, belonging to the parish, who have been baptized and are regular attendants at its worship and contributors to its support for at least twelve (12) months prior to such election. Any member who meets the qualifications for election to the Vestry and has been confirmed or received in The Episcopal Church, is eligible for election as a Warden.
It is not necessary for the proposer to verify a candidate's interest in serving on the Vestry, or that they meet the above qualifications - it is the work of the Nominating Committee to take care of that. The Junior Warden position is a renewable two-year term.
The Committee will present a slate of candidates to be voted on by the members of St. John's at our Annual Meeting on Sunday, April 26, 2020.
If you have any questions, please contact Ted Bahr or one of the members of the Nominating Committee.
