Are you dedicated to striving for justice and peace among all people, and respecting the dignity of every human being? If so, EPF would love to have your energy and vision for putting that dedication into action. Between now and November 30, 2020, we are accepting applications for service on our NEC. This is a three year obligation. After three years of service, you would be eligible to be re-elected to serve for another three year term. Your term would begin in 2021. Accepting this nomination means that you would be responsible for the following, should you be elected to serve by the current members of the NEC.
+ Pray, study, act. You agree to follow and exemplify EPFs mission through living into your baptismal covenant to strive for justice and peace and to respect the dignity of every person.
+ Participation. Traditionally, the NEC meets twice each year, in person. COVID has made it necessary for us to hold these meetings via Zoom. More recently, we have been meeting every other month, for two hours, via Zoom. You would agree to attend these virtual meetings and be available for such other virtual meetings as are needed from time to time during your term of service.
+ Committees. EPF and the NEC have four committees: membership, sustainability, programming and communications. You will agree to serve on one committee and to be in regular contact with other committee members to accomplish the purposes of the committee and EPF.
+ Development. You will agree to promote EPF’s financial, membership and organizational development, on local, regional and national level. You agree to contribute money to EPF every month at a level which is compatible with your personal financial situation.
+ Nonviolence. You agree to seek ways of resolving conflict in nonviolent ways, and to promote peace, justice and nonviolence in your personal, professional and spiritual life
+ Stewardship. You will be a good steward of EPF through careful decisions about programs, finances and policy.
