Call for Nominations
OPPORTUNITIES TO OFFER LEADERSHIP
IN THE SHINING WATERS REGIONAL COUNCIL
People across the region are invited to express their interest or nominate others who have the gifts to serve in the following leadership roles: Social Justice Commission and Nominations Committee.
The draft policy for the Social Justice Commission is available HERE.
Information about the Nomination Committee is available HERE.
As members of Shining Waters Regional Council, you know the voices who could offer fresh perspectives and insights. This is a time to look not just for members of the church who have been active in former Presbyteries and Conference, but also for those who are skilled and active in local communities. We are excited about the prospect of finding new voices for a new time.
We are also envisioning the possibility of committees and commissions with a good representation from racialized communities or other groups that have traditionally been marginalized in church decision-making. We are seeking people who reflect the diversity of Shining Waters Regional Council, including but not limited to, cultural and ethnic background, gender, sexual orientation, physical ability, geography and age.
Please share this information widely within communities of faith and across the regional council, and prayerfully consider whether you are called to serve in this way at this time in the life of Shining Waters Regional Council. Or, if you know someone who you think would serve us well, please offer their names or invite them to put their name forward. We need your help to find nominees for these positions. Terms of office for most positions are typically for three years, renewable once. Interested candidates should review the information and complete the Nominations Form below.
We would appreciate receiving your nomination forms by the following deadlines:
Nomination Committee closes Friday, August 9, 2019.
Social Justice Commission closes Friday, August 16, 2019
If you, or your nominee, have any questions please contact us directly at KirstyHunter@united-church.ca.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Blessings on your discernment.
