In accordance with the article 4.1.5 of our By-law, any two members of a congregation, after seeking advice from the Congregation Pastor, may nominate a third member of the same congregation as a candidate for an eligible leadership position. The nomination has to be presented in writing to the Church Board by October 17. The nomination must be signed by the nominee and the nominating members.
Due to the current pandemic emergent condition as declared by the government of B.C., our in-person election process has to be suspended. The Board has decided to use the mail-in voting process to ensure that all members can vote in closed ballots. A voting package will be sent out to each member of the Church by mail on October 19. Members will be requested to return the closed ballots to the Church by mail (pre-paid return envelops will be provided as part of the voting package), and all ballots must be received by Nov 6 to be valid. As well, to accommodate this mailing process, the AGM for 2020 will be held on Nov 8. Members are requested to provide mailing address updates for Church’s record as soon as possible by phone or email.
