Seeking Steering Committee Nominees

Steering Committee Open Positions

Looking for a way to help Presbyterians for Earth Care? One way is to nominate a qualified and responsible person to fill one of our open positions on the Steering Committee – or to nominate yourself!

This year the Vice-Moderator, Midwest Regional Representative, and Northeast Regional Representative are up for election. Regional Representatives connect with PEC members and are expected to live in their regions.

The Steering Committee is an important group because it conducts the business of the organization, determines and reviews purposes and strategies, makes decisions about the organization, sets policy, raises funds for the organization, approves an annual budget and manages the finances. That is why we are asking you to nominate interested and creative persons to fill our open positions by responding to this email and sending us the name of your nominee, contact information, and what gifts this person could bring to the Steering Committee. Please make your nominations by May 31.

The PEC Steering Committee is currently composed of a Moderator, Vice Moderator, Treasurer, and six Regional Representatives. A part-time Coordinator, hired on a contract basis, conducts administrative, communication, fundraising, program, and other tasks as assigned by the Steering Committee. New members will begin their terms in the fall.

On a similar note, PEC is accepting nominations for our annual awards until March 31: the William Gibson Eco-Justice Award, the Emerging Earth Care Leader Award (for 18-30 year olds), and the Restoring Creation Award (for organizations). You may read about the qualifications on our website. PEC members are invited to make a nomination online.  If you aren’t already a member, you can join online.

You are a vital part of Presbyterians for Earth Care and your participation is appreciated.
