Vestry Updates

The CEB Vestry is elected at the annual meeting each year. Terms are normally for three years. In the same election, a Junior and Senior Warden for the Vestry are elected. The Rector and the Junior and Senior Wardens are the officers of the Parish, especially for legal documents. Vestry Meetings are open and a Vestry Clerk is elected to take down notes and minutes for the meetings and to document resolutions–the official format for taking action to support the needs of the Parish.

This page will have the most current Vestry Notes and Minutes–after they have been reviewed and approved by the Vestry (so they’re about a month behind when posted.) Any other information coming from the Vestry will also be posted on this page.
