Based on feedback received from parishioners during the two Zoom information sessions, we have made revisions to the proposed new Parish By-Laws. The changes are relatively minor, but we believe they have resulted in an even stronger set of governing procedures. Below we have included a summary of the updates.
Both the By-Laws Committee and the Vestry have reviewed and approved the changes. We will bring these By-Laws for a vote during the annual meeting on Sunday, January 31st at 11:15 am via Zoom. It is our hope that we will have the parish’s support in adopting these new By-Laws.
the Vestry and By-Laws Committee
Summary of final revisions:
— To include an overall limit on consecutive years of service as an Officer and Vestry member to ten years.
— To require consultation by the Rector with the Vestry, instead of just the Wardens, in appointing committee members.
— To include a limitation of liability for Officers and other Vestry members tracking Section 33-1026 of the Connecticut General Statutes.
— To add a provision contemplating periodic review and reconsideration of the By-Laws, largely as a reminder to the Vestry of the value of doing so.
