Nominating Committee Procedures
Example 1: The Nominations Committee shall publicize, solicit, and submit the names of all qualified candidates for vacant positions on the Board and Congregational Committees. Members who desire to serve in positions on the Board or Congregational Committees shall apply to the Nominations Committee, pursuant to standing rules adopted by the Committee.
Example 2: The first Nominating Committee meeting each year shall be called by the past president. The Committee shall work throughout the year to gather information on the interests, abilities and talents of all members and make this information available to standing committees as needs arise. They shall initiate an open sign-up for committees in May following the annual meeting and then work with the newly elected Governing Council to fill committee positions for the following year. The Nominating Committee shall notify the voting members of the Fellowship of its nominations for officers and trustees at least ten (10) days before the annual meeting by listing such nominations on the notice of the annual meeting, or by posting such nominations at the usual regular meeting place of Fellowship. Any voting member shall be entitled to nominate a candidate or candidates for any office from the floor at any meeting at which officers or trustees are being elected.
Example 3: For each annual election to be held at each Annual Meeting of the Congregation, the Nominating Committee shall submit one (1) nominee for the following available positions: (a) President; (b) Vice President; (c) Treasurer; (d) Secretary; (e) Board of Trustees; (f) Search Committee; (g) Nominating Committee. Nominations also shall be submitted at each annual election to fill the remainder of terms of office for Board of Trustee positions in which vacancies have occurred since the last annual election, the normal terms for such positions being then unexpired. The Nominating Committee shall issue a list of nominations no later than thirty (30) days prior to the Annual Meeting of the Congregation. This list shall be published in the Church newsletter and posted at the then current place of meeting of the Church.
