(Formerly Nominating Committee)
The Leadership Development Committee serves two purposes:
- Identify members willing and able to fill elected leadership positions within the congregation;
- Encourage the development of lay leadership participation and skills among members and friends of all ages through programs and mentoring.
The Leadership Committee works to develop a slate of prospective candidates to fill elected leadership positions. The candidates are approached by committee members to determine their availability and interest in serving. The slate is presented to the minister, who can give feedback on the candidates or suggest members of the congregation who might have been overlooked.
Once finalized, the slate is presented to the congregation for its approval at the Annual Meeting in June. The committee is an elected body. Members serve a two year term.
