Executive Board

Two clergy and four laypersons are to be elected for three-year terms.  Retiring incumbents, Mrs. Alice Ann Fischer, Mr. Brian Kates, Mrs. Martha Steves, Mrs. Libby Templeton, and the Revs. John Hill and Bonnie Reeves are ineligible.

Description of duties: The Executive Board is required to meet two times a year, but usually meets more often.  The Board functions in a way similar to a parish vestry, including preparing the diocesan budget and submitting it to Council for approval. The Executive Board appoints several committees, including the Finance Department and the Nominating Committee. The Executive board approves the designations regarding the World Mission funding opportunities (line 1b). Members of the Executive board serve as liaisons to the various departments and commissions of the diocese. A knowledge of (and experience in) ministries representing the breadth of the diocese is an asset to persons who serve on the Executive Board. At the same time, a willingness to engage diocesan ministry and learn of the breadth of the diocese is the most basic requirement for service on the Executive Board.
