This update is a part of a Governance Update being sent by email to all Foothills members.
As part of our upcoming Annual Congregational Meeting, we will be electing two new board members and a president-elect. This will leave us with a seven-member board for the coming year (assuming that our Governance trial year receives congregational support).
The three current members of the Nominating Committee will continue on for the next year as their terms are not yet concluded. As our Governance trial requires a three person Nominating Committee, we will not need to elect additional members this year.
As required by the bylaws, we will be proposing a slate of nominees to be elected by the congregation at the Annual Meeting. You will receive information about these candidates in the packet sent out to all members on 5/17.
In addition, our Committee, in conjunction with the Board and the Governance Task Force, has been taking a more active role in leadership development this year, with the goal to not only identify those ready and willing to serve, but to give them the training needed to be successful in lay leadership positions within Foothills. If you are interested in becoming part of our leadership development process and/or serving as a leader in our congregation, please contact one of our Nominating Committee members by the first week of May if you’d like to be involved this year, and at any point for future leadership.
Nominating Committee – Steve Undy, Chair (firstname.lastname@example.org), Linda Kothera, Rich Young and Adam Henk
