Call for Engaged and Talented Members (you know that’s you!)

The Nominatinchalice held by peopleg Committee is seeking 5 people who are interested in helping to shape the future of FPS while deepening their relationships with our Minister, staff and other members.

TREASURER – One opening for a 2-year term starting 7/1/16

You revel in data and systems, love jigsaw puzzles and read financial statements to understand the stories they tell about the present state and future direction of an organization.

You enjoy the satisfaction of reviewing your bank accounts every month, and still remember the thrill you experienced when your financial institution implemented on-line banking.

You want to take an active part in shaping the future of FP Sudbury, and you know that good systems and accurate information provide the foundation for mission and vision.

TRUSTEE – Three openings for 3-year terms starting 7/1/16

If your car had a bumper sticker, it would read, “Get Involved. The world is run by those who show up.” You see the beauty in governing documents and would happily discuss the many ways in which the Massachusetts state constitution influenced the formation of our federal government.

You can count on one hand the number of elections in which you did not vote, you have attended your Town Meeting and plan to do so again, and you love that your spiritual community is grounded in the structure of participatory democracy.

You want to take an active part in shaping the future of FP Sudbury, and you appreciate the give-and-take discussion of our work as a community and the ways in which we can accomplish that work.

NOMINATING COMMITTEE MEMBER – One opening for a 2-year term starting 7/1/16

You are a secret (or overt!) matchmaker. You love listening to people’s stories and discovering the talents and passions that make each of us come alive. You enjoy impromptu meetings for coffee and conversation, and count a day well-spent when you’ve made deeper connections with the people in your community.

You’ve been a coach for your kids, your friends or your coworkers, and some of your sweetest memories are of the times when you encouraged someone to stretch and then recognized how much they (and you) have grown in the process.

You want to take an active part in shaping the future of FP Sudbury, strengthening community by encouraging each of us to share our gifts in ways that support our spiritual practices.

Commitment for Treasurer and Trustee positions is preparing for and attending a monthly meeting, plus additional work between meetings. Often a Trustee is a liaison to a committee and works closely with that group. Nominating Committee members do most of their work “behind the scenes” and outside of regular meetings, with the bulk of the work occurring between January and May.

If any of these descriptions sound like you or someone you know and love, please talk with either of us. We can’t wait to hear from you!

Nominating Committee Members: Rebecca Parkhill and Sherene Aram.
