Diocesan Convention Delegate Nomination Form

Nominees for Convention Delegates Sought --

Are You Called To Lead?

Nominations are now open for delegates to the 2016 Diocesan Convention.  Nominees for the position should be pledging members of Trinity Cathedral Church who are committed to serving the congregation in a leadership capacity.  Here is a brief overview about the roles and responsibilities of a convention delegate.


The 2016 Diocesan Convention location and date has yet to be announced.  Please note this is a Friday and Saturday, enabling clergy and delegates to return to their home parish for Sunday worship.  Delegates to the 2016 Diocesan Convention are voting representatives of the congregation.  Delegates at convention may discuss and vote on issues including Diocesan policy, budget, and matters of ministry, social and economic justice and other topics proposed by various Diocesan committees.  The nominating committee will put forth a slate of 2016 Convention delegates and alternates at the Annual Meeting.

To recommend yourself or to recommend someone else to serve as a Diocesan Convention delegate, simply complete the nomination form. If you are recommending someone other than yourself, please have the nominee sign the form. Completed forms should be submitted to the Cathedral office by Monday February 8th, 2016 for consideration by the nominating committee. The nomination committee will work with nominees to create a statement of interest and qualifications to be published online and posted around the cathedral.  Elections are by the membership of the congregation during the Cathedral’s Annual Meeting on Sunday, February 21st, 2016.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss this process further, please contact:
