2020 Election of the BFC Council

Due to Covid-19, we have had a bit of a delay arranging the council election. As we are now moving things along, please pay attention to emails to be sure your vote is included!

The BFC Council consists of 8 elected representatives from our community along with the current pastor.

Every year, 4 new members of the council are elected. They will serve for 2 years from the time of election, and 4 members who have finished serving the previous two years will leave the council, but they are then eligible to run again if they desire.

Joining the BFC council is a wonderful way to serve and truly become a valuable and vibrant part of your community.

Election process:

  1. First- nominations are received by the council election committee. Anyone in our membership can be nominated to be a candidate for the council. The candidates must meet specific criteria outlined below in order to run in the election. You may nominate yourself or anyone in our community whom you feel could do a good job serving on the council.
  2. Nominees will be asked if they are willing to run and to be sure they meet the qualifications.
  3. Once the nominees have accepted to become candidates, then the voting period will begin.
  4. Voting will take place through on-line ballots as well as paper ballots that can be submitted at Sunday Service at Belvedere during the voting period.

For questions, please contact the election committee at election@belvederefamily.com
or the council at council@belvederefamily.com.

Nominations

We are now in the nomination phase. The last day for nominations is August 2, 2020.

It is a great way to serve your brothers and sisters and to have a say in the decisions that affect our community.
