One cleric and one lay person to be elected for a three-year term. Retiring incumbents, the Rev. Jennifer Brooke-Davidson and Dr. John Mason are eligible.
Description of duties: The Episcopal Church Corporation holds title to the permanent funds and other property belonging to the diocese. It has authority to receive bequests and donations, and to sell or mortgage property to which it holds title. As such, Trustees should have an understanding of/interest in financial, real estate, and property matters. The Trustees work with the Bishop on designating certain restricted funds as they are needed in ministry. There is usually monthly contact needed with the Trustees, and a substantial amount of the Trustees business historically has been done via telephone and mail and confirmed at their quarterly meetings.
