February 22, 2009 Congregational Meeting

Chapel in the Pines Presbyterian Church
Congregational Meeting
February 22, 2009 – 11:30 a.m. – North Chatham School, Chapel Hill, NC

The meeting was called to order by the Reverend Mindy Douglas Adams just before the close of worship.  She stated that the purpose of the meeting was the election of a Nominating Committee.  She announced that the Clerk of Session, Mary Donna Pond, was present and asked the congregation to elect her as Clerk for the Congregational Meeting.  No other nominations were offered and Mary Donna was elected Clerk.  Mindy asked the Clerk if a quorum was present and Mary Donna affirmed that there was a quorum.

Mindy offered the slate of nominees:  Chuck Rickard (Elder currently serving on Session), Harriet McGraw (Elder), Phyllis Greene (Deacon currently serving on the Board of Deacons), and four at-large nominees (Nathan Campbell, Pat Chappell, Bill Dengler, and Bart Holtz).  She then invited nominations from the floor.  Hearing none, Marcia Ladd moved that the nominations be closed.  Ford Heath seconded the motion and the vote to close the nominations passed unopposed.  Mindy then called for a vote and the slate of nominees for the Nominating Committee was elected without dissent.

Mindy stated that this committee will work together to develop a slate of nominees for Elder and Deacon and any other nominations that may be needed during the coming year.

As there was no other business to conduct, Mindy closed the meeting with prayer and a benediction.  The meeting ended at 11:35 a.m.

Respectfully submitted,
Mary Donna Pond, Clerk
