The senior warden also works closely with the dean on special projects and initiatives in the life of the cathedral congregation. In absence of the dean, the senior warden presides at meetings of the vestry. The senior warden is elected by simple plurality; the person receiving the most votes is elected. One person is to be elected for a one-year term.

The junior warden is elected by plurality; the person receiving the most votes is elected. One person is to be elected for a one-year term.

VESTRY MEMBER

As the legal representative body of a parish or cathedral, the vestry defines the mission of the congregation; ensures effective organization and planning; and manages resources and finances. Vestry members are required to attend the regular meetings and should be available for special events at the cathedral. Vestry members are elected by plurality but with no fewer than one-third of all ballots cast in any round of voting.

ENDOWMENT TRUSTEE
Trustees administer assets for the benefit of a third party; in the case of the cathedral, the assets are the endowment fund. Trustees are required to attend quarterly meetings and to review detailed financial reports. Trustees are elected by plurality; the person receiving the most votes is elected.

DELEGATES TO THE DIOCESAN CONVENTION
Delegates represent the congregation at the annual diocesan convention. Delegates are required to attend the convention during a weekend in early November. Delegates are elected by plurality. The two persons receiving the most votes are to serve as delegates; the two persons receiving the third and fourth number of votes are to serve as alternates. Alternate delegates serve in the absence of the delegates.

NOMINATING COMMITTEE MEMBERS
Members of the nominating committee utilize congregational input to compile a slate of candidates for the cathedral’s open leadership and representative seats. Nominating committee members are expected to attend a series of meetings from May through January to complete their work. Nominating committee members are elected by plurality.
