Vestry & Council Nominations Due
The Nominating Committee would like to begin the process of identifying qualiﬁed persons to serve on the All Saints’ Vestry for the next three years, as well as persons qualiﬁed to serve as delegates and alternates to the next Annual Diocesan Council. You are invited to consider individuals who will faithfully fulﬁll the duties of Vestry members and Council delegates. Recommendations for nominees should be submitted in writing to the Nominating Committee by no later than September 15th so that bio‘s of the nominees can be included in the church newsletter. Letters of recommendation should include an indication of the nominated individual’s consent to be considered. Please submit these letters to a member of the Nominating Committee, or place it in Brian Hopper’s or Mona Myers’ mailbox in the Church Ofﬁce.
The Nominating Committee: Olga Garza, Karen Mountain, Charles Stuart and Kate Wood.
They will consider all nominees and recommend four Vestry candidates and eight Council delegates/alternates to the full Vestry. Upon Vestry approval, the slate of nominees will be presented at the Parish Elections meeting held on Sunday, November 17th. Mark your calendars and plan to attend the meeting that will take place in Kinsolving Parish Hall following the 8:00 a.m. service at 9:30. Some proposed helpful attributes for candidates are: a team player, a problem solver, a good negotiator, good analytical skills, a strong commitment to help our Rector carry out the mission of the parish, knowledge of the parish, and a person of trust. In addition, it is helpful that delegates to Diocesan Council have some knowledge of Diocesan and National Church issues, policies, and procedures. They must also be available to attend the Council meeting to be held on February 7 -8, 2020, at the Waco Convention Center, in Waco, TX. Please give these positions prayerful consideration.
