The Slate of Candidates for Vestry and Delegates to Diocesan Convention
The Parish Annual Meeting includes the election of new members of the Vestry to serve in three year terms and Delegates to Diocesan Convention who serve in two year terms.

Every year, it is usual for three Vestry members to rotate off the Vestry to be replaced by three newly elected members. This year we have an additional seat on Vestry due to Jim Nichols’ passing.  The slate of new Vestry members standing for election this year are:

  • Liz Bee
  • Eric Hanson
  • Jan Skidmore
  • Wendre Vaughan

Additionally, every year, we rotate between electing two Delegates and two Alternate Delegates to Diocesan Convention.  This year we are electing two Delegates to Diocesan Convention. 

 The slate of two Delegates for Diocesan Convention standing for election this year are:

  • Craig “Jake” Jacobson
  • Cyndi Jacobson

All those running for election will be introduced during our Virtual Annual Meeting. Nominations from the floor for Vestry or Convention Alternates can be made with the following requirements:

1) the candidate must be a member in good standing,
2) the nominators must have the candidate’s permission for nomination,
3) the name of the candidate and nominator must be submitted
