How We Find Our Officers Each Year

Each year, some of our officers step down and others step in to replace them. Members are invited to recommend replacements.

The Process

There are several Board members and Trustee positions up for election this year. Some current members will remain, others are stepping down, and their positions need to be filled. Mosaic's process for that includes these steps:

  1. Any member can recommend a name (including themselves) for any open position
  2. A nominating committee (usually an Elder, a Board member, and another Mosaic member) reviews all recommendations, talks to nominees, and develops a slate of candidates
  3. The Elders and Board review and endorse the nominations
  4. Members vote for or against each nomination at the annual meeting
