Seeking nominations for the Executive Council and Court of Adjudication: Nomination Deadline is June 16

Dear NALC Congregations,

We are sending this request to all congregations in the NALC. Nominations are still being sought for positions on the Executive Council and the Court of Adjudication for election at our 2021 NALC Mission Convocation. We are seeking one clergy and one lay person to serve a four-year term on the Executive Council. The Executive Council serves as the Board of Directors for the NALC, providing leadership for the church between the biennial convocations. We are also seeking two candidates (lay or clergy) for a four-year term on the Court of Adjudication. The Court of Adjudication hears appeals from disciplinary decisions; resolves questions of interpretation of NALC governing documents; and decides claims that a person or entity has violated these governing documents. Persons with legal experience would prove valuable on the court.

Pastors, please communicate the need for nominees to your congregational members in whatever manner you feel would be most effective. After securing the candidate’s permission, a NALC congregation may submit a candidate for nomination. The nomination form and the nominee biographical information form are available on the NALC website — thenalc.org/nominate. Nominations can be submitted at [email protected]The final deadline for submitting nominations is June 16.
