In addition to the slate of candidates from the Nominating Committee, our church bylaws allow Nominations by Petition.  Members in good standing may nominate themselves or others for any position up for election. To do so, signatures of at least fifteen members of the congregation must be presented to the church office at least 21 days in advance of the Annual Congregational Business Meeting, along with a signed statement from each prospective nominee of willingness to serve if elected.  The deadline this year is May 13, 2018.  No additional nominations will be received after the stated period.

Biographies about the new nominees can be found here.

Questions about the election process may be directed to the current members of the Nominating Committee: Connie Hirnle, Manny Brown, Kirstie Lewis, Katie Edwards, and Bill Austin.
