• Nomination Process

The nomination process is divided into two parts:
  • Online nominations for District Secretary, Boards, and Committee. (Nominations must be submitted no later than November 4, 2014.) An email has been sent to all Pastors with a link and a password. This will allow you to make your nominations. In addition, you may also create a nomination account for the congregation's President or Secretary (should either of them submit the nominations). If you did not receive this email please check your Spam or Junk folder. If you need a new invitation, please contact Gwen in the President's office and the invitation will be resent.
