2021–2022 Discernment Process for the Election of Trinity Wall Street Vestry Members

The Annual Vestry Election will be held on April 6, 2021, Easter Tuesday, as specified under the 1697 Charter.

The Parish Nominating Committee is in the process of discernment where potential Vestry members of Trinity parish are identified and proposed for the 2021 election slate, as well as for future years. The discernment process is as follows:

• Any eligible member of the congregation may submit recommendations to the Parish Nominating Committee. All recommendations were due in writing by January 17, 2021.

• All members of the parish who are 18 years or older, have officially enrolled in the parish registry, and have contributed to the support of the Parish in any documented amount within the preceding year (April 2020–April 2021) are eligible to make recommendations and vote in the Vestry election.*

• The Parish Nominating Committee will review all recommendations for vacant Vestry positions for the 2021-2022 slate. The final slate of candidates will be identified by March 14, 2021.

• A mail ballot form, accompanying biographical information, along with a pre-paid envelope will be mailed to all eligible parishioners on or before March 22, 2021. The register of eligible voters is available for inspection, and a member of the congregation may confirm that his or her name is included on the register by emailing Mike Hogan at MHogan@trinitywallstreet. org. Registration can also be completed on April 6, 2021, upon application to the Priestin- charge upon proving the above-mentioned qualifications.

• Vestry Election Day is April 6, 2021. Mail ballots must be received before 4pm on Tuesday, April 6. The results will be announced on Trinity’s website the next morning and at the Sunday services following the election.

* Due to the suspension of in-person worship since March 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Vestry has waived the eligibility requirement of taking Holy Communion within the preceding year (April 2020–April 2021) for this election only.

Any questions regarding the election, discernment process, or voter eligibility can be directed to Mike Hogan, Director of Administration and Corporate Secretary, at MHogan@trinitywallstreet.org or 646.216.6261.
