NOMINATING PROCEDURE:

The permission of a nominee should be obtained before placing that person’s name in nomination. In the event prior consent has not been received at the time of nomination, the nominee will be asked to accept or decline the nomination. In the event that a category receives no nominations, the voting will proceed with those categories represented only.

The Nominating Committee shall be composed of ten persons as follows:

1) three from the Session;

2) 1 member from the Board of Deacons;

3) 6 members from the Congregation-at-large, none of whom may be a presently serving officer, as follows: 2 men with no age restriction, 2 women with no age restriction, 1 youth age 20 or under,1 young adult age 21 to 35.

No person may be nominated for more than one category. Ballots with fewer than six will still be counted. The two men, two women, one youth, and one young adult receiving the highest number of votes cast will be elected. All members elected to the Nominating Committee are elected for a one year term and cannot serve two consecutive terms (with the exception of two Elders).

Two of the Session members will serve two-year terms on an alternative year basis and the Elder in the elder’s second-year term will be the chairperson of the committee and the other two-year member will serve as vice-chair. The other Elder elected by the Session serves a one year term. Serving from the Session will be Brody Black (chair) and two other members of the Session will be named.
