PRESENTATION OF THE CANDIDATE FOR SENIOR MINISTER AND CONGREGATIONAL VOTE
Members: Please Arrive Early to Check-In to Vote in Narthex before Worship | Registration Opens 9:00 am
As required in the By-laws of The Riverside Church and the New York Religious Corporations Law, notice is hereby given to full members of the Church over the age of 16 that a Special Meeting will take place Sunday, July 17, 2022 after worship. The purpose of the meeting is to present the candidate for Senior Minister and hold a congregational vote for approval in accordance with Article X, §4, which states, “The Search Committee shall recommend a single candidate for the position of Senior Minister to the Congregation for approval at a meeting of the Church called for that purpose.”
Pursuant to the By-laws, this notice shall be publicly read by a minister of the Church or any Church Council member at a regular Church meeting for public worship on the two successive Sundays immediately preceding such meeting.
No action can be taken at a special meeting except upon the purpose specifically set forth in the meeting notice.
Because the By-laws do not permit on-line voting, and because no pandemic-related regulatory authority currently waives the requirement for in-person voting, all voting will be conducted in person in the Nave of the sanctuary. We strongly encourage members to attend this in-person meeting. The meeting will be live-streamed for members of the Church who wish to observe the meeting without speaking and voting.
