Letter from the Nominating Committee

The Nominating Committee (Nom Com) is made up of three church members and a Board liaison. Members serve for staggered three-year terms and are tasked with developing a slate of candidates for the elected positions at Foothills. The committee meets monthly starting in November to develop a slate of candidates for the annual Spring congregational meeting.

 The process (per our Governance policies) includes:

  • Identifying the number of openings that need to be filled for the Board of Trustees, Endowment Committee, and the Nom Com. 
  • Based upon openings, working with each entity to identify their current needs that will be met by the characteristics of the incoming candidates, and providing that information to the Leadership Development Team (LDT). 
  • After the LDT identifies qualified candidates for open positions, those names are passed to the Nom Com, whose members have the responsibility of contacting qualified congregants and assembling a final slate of candidates.
  • The Nom Com presents the slate for an up-or-down congregational vote at the spring meeting.  

If you are interested in serving in a leadership position at Foothills, please contact Jenn Powell or Rev. Sean. We look forward to presenting to you a group of qualified members committed to serving the mission of Foothills.
