Voting for Officers
South Church’s rules call for members to vote in the leadership of its various boards and ministries. In light of the limiting circumstances of gathering in person, members will be allowed to vote with the form below. To review the choices before voting, use this brochure. Voting will be open only during the annual meeting, and a single administrator will discreetly pass on the votes anonymously of all voters who are listed in the membership.
