Nominations Committee

one body, many parts

There are many talented people in the Synod with the gifts to help support our work, and finding such people is significantly helped by a dedicated group of people to receive offers and nominations, to search for nominations and to discuss and invite such people to be members of the Synod’s committees.

A Nominations Committee is able to cast the net more widely and encourage people not previously involved in Synod committee work to join and swell the numbers, offering their experience, expertise, knowledge and wisdom. Executive is seeking people with a range of backgrounds, experience of working in voluntary organisations, and knowledge of the URC.

Functions of the Synod Nominations Committee

The proposed terms of reference for the Nominations Committee are:

  • To nominate to Synod those people who may serve on various committees and Missional Partnerships
  • To suggest names of URC representatives to external and ecumenical organisational bodies
  • To propose names for appointment groups for Synod Moderator and certain other Synod staff
  • To present those nominations agreed by Executive to Synod Meeting

The Nominations Committee would bring names to Synod Meeting for fill agreement, with Executive acting on behalf of Synod Meeting where an urgent appointment is required
