At its July 2019 meeting, the Vestry approved a recommendation to amend our bylaws and change our Vestry election process to a Vestry Slate. This was done after careful consideration both by the Vestry and by a bylaws subcommittee that was charged with the review of this potential change. St. Paul’s parishioners will vote on this change at its February annual meeting. Prior to this vote, there will be 4 information sessions:

Sunday, January 12:  8:30 am, 10:15 am, and 4:00 pm
Location: Chapel


Wednesday, January 22, 5:00 p.m.
Location:  Colhoun B/C

As many may remember, last January we held an initial meeting to discuss this potential change. At that time, the Vestry felt it needed more time to answer questions and address concerns.  The Wardens formed a ByLaws Election Subcommittee, making sure we included people who had reservations regarding this change. Many areas of concern were resolved, and the committee worked out details of how the election process would work.

In this new process, a committee–composed of both Vestry members and parishioners–will recommend the slate. There would continue to be an avenue for additional nominations to be accepted should a parishioner want to nominate someone not on the slate. The committee clarified the role of the Rector, as well as the selection process for parishioners who will sit on the committee.

We hope you will come to one of the scheduled information sessions. We are happy to answer questions and hear any thoughts you have on this election issue.
