Elder Vote 2020

Dear Grace partners,

Each year, at the request of the Board of Elders, the Nominating Committee seeks to replace seats on the board that will need to be filled as some elders’ terms Bert Banks and Andrea Hounshell) come to an end this December. This is in order to maintain the size of the board at the allowed range of five to eight elders. This year, board members asked the Nominating Committee to present them with one to three candidates to serve starting in January 2021.

As a Grace partner, you are entitled to vote on the three candidates presented to and affirmed by the board at its meeting on July 6: Nancy LaCivita, Michelle Massey, and Brad Gwinn. These three candidates were recommended to the Nominating Committee by partners back in April, then completed in-depth questionnaires and met with committee members and finally are being submitted as candidates by the board of Elders. If approved by Grace partners, they will serve three-year terms, with optional extensions in years four, five and six.

Please vote for each candidate below and submit your vote anytime between today and Monday, August 31, 2020.

Thank you!
Your Board of Elders
