Excerpts from Bylaws adopted 6 February 2011:

 

ARTICLE V            VESTRY

Section 1.            Number:  The affairs of this corporation shall be managed by a Board of Directors called the Vestry, which shall consist of the Rector, included as an ex-officio member, and no fewer than six or more than fifteen duly elected persons. The parish, by a majority vote, may fix or change the total number elected annually. The Rector shall be an ex-officio member of the Vestry with presiding authority that may be delegated to a Warden.

 

Section 2.            Qualifications:  To be qualified for election to the Vestry and to maintain Vestry membership, a person shall be, and shall remain throughout his/her term, an adult communicant in good standing in the Parish with voting rights as per Article IV, Section 6.

 

[Section 6.            Voting Rights:  Qualified electors of the parish shall be Adult Communicants in good standing of the parish, whose names have been on the Parish Register for at least six (6) months preceding the parish meeting, and who have made recorded contributions to the parish budget, within the twelve months preceding the meeting, as shown by the books of the parish treasurer.]

 

 

Section 3.            Election:  At each Annual Meeting, Vestry members shall be elected by vote of the adult communicants in good standing in the Parish with voting rights as per Article IV, Section 6.  Vestry members so elected shall serve a term of three (3) years and until the election of their successors.  No Vestry member who is elected to a full three-year term shall be eligible for re-election to the Vestry until one (1) year after the term for which that member was elected.

 

Section 4.            Removal:  A Vestry member may be removed from office by a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the entire Vestry for any of the following causes:

                             

a)     Failure to maintain the qualifications referred to in Section 2 above.

 

b)    Unexcused absence from three (3) meetings within a year or attending less than eight (8) meeting in a year.

 

Section 5.            Vacancies:  The Vestry may, at a meeting duly called, fill a vacancy in its own membership until the next scheduled Parish Meeting, at which time the Parish shall elect a member for the remaining portion of the unexpired term.

 

Section 6.            Nomination and Election:  Those retiring Vestry members plus one additional serving Vestry member shall constitute a nominating committee.  Prior to the Annual Parish Meeting, the nominating committee shall present a slate of qualified nominees to the Vestry, at least sufficient in quantity to equal the number of positions to be filled in the Vestry election.  Additional nominations may be made from the floor at the Annual Parish Meeting.  Those nominees receiving the greatest number of votes shall be elected.  In the event that terms of differing lengths are to be filled, the nominee receiving the largest number of votes shall fill the longest term and so on until all available positions have been filled. In the event that terms of differing lengths are to be filled and there are an equal number of nominees and open positions and the vote is done by acclamation, the Vestry at its next meeting will determine the terms of the newly elected members.
