The 2016 Nominating Committee presents the candidates named below for positions to be elected at the NALC Convocation August 10-12 in Anaheim, California.

No nominations were received for a lay member to fill the 4-year term on the Executive Council. Therefore, we earnestly solicit nominations for this position.

Regarding additional nominations for Executive Council, the NALC Constitution (10.03, 15.01), specifies that “Three or more delegates representing at least three congregations may together submit an additional nomination in writing. To be in order, the nomination, together with supporting biographical information, must be submitted to the Nominating Committee no later than 45 days prior to the Convocation.

Please send additional nominations to nominations@thenalc.org by June 27, 2016. The necessary forms may be found at the bottom of the 2016 Lutheran Week page.

We believe that the individuals named below are qualified and would do well in their service if elected.

This year’s candidates for Executive Council, Court of Adjudication and NALS Board of Regents are:

  • Executive Council, clergy, one 4-year term: Carl Haynes, Kenneth Kimball, William Maki
  • Executive Council, lay, one 4-year term: TBD – Nominees sought (minimum of two needed)
  • Court of Adjudication, one 4-year term: David Schafer
  • NALS Board of Regents, one 4-year term: Ralph Kempski, Thurmond Plexico, Paull Spring
