I would like to take the time to call to your attention the upcoming nominations for offices at the 2018 Diocesan Convention.
In accordance with Canon 5, Section 3 of the Constitutions and Canons of the Diocese of New Jersey a list of the offices to be filled by the election of the 233nd Diocesan Convention will be provided. In addition, the Nomination Recommendation Form as well as a list of the Nominating Committee members will be available. Please note, that this packet will be the only print communication mailed from the Nominating Committee prior to convention.
The Nominating Committee requests that the clergy and lay leadership of each of our churches review the lists of offices to be filled by election, publicize them to their congregations, and recommend candidates appropriate for those offices.
We continue to be very thankful for those who have served the Diocese ably and well in the past and may choose to serve again. We also welcome and encourage those who have not served before to consider serving in one or more of the open positions.
Please fill out the Nomination Recommendation Form for persons whom you recommend. Submit it to the on the form by no later than October 16, 2017. Or you can submit your form online – http://www.formstack.com/forms/?408210-fFQ7hk5oRm. Please take note to provide a statement of qualification in 75 words or less, as this statement is not provided by the committee. All names submitted will be placed in the nomination process. Again, please make this material known and available to your congregation.
Please feel free to contact me or any member of the Nominating Committee with any questions or concerns you may have.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve. We look forward to assisting you in whatever way possible for this very important part of our life in the Diocese of New Jersey.
Yours in Christ,
Arthur G. Pedersen
Chair, Nominating Committee
