Dear St. Anselm’s parishioners,

  • Rectors Warden
  • People’s Warden
  • Treasurer
  • Parish Council Secretary

  • Trustees (up to 7)
  • Member of Synod (2)
  • Alternative Members of Synod (3)

  • Alternative Youth Member of Synod

In addition to these elected positions the Signing Officers are made up of the two Wardens, the Treasurer and two Council Members.

A description of the duties and responsibilities of each of the elected positions is available via our email service to parishioners or may be requested by writing either of us at t.chee[at]ubc.ca or schipizky[at]gmail.com

Nominations may be made by any parish member (including self-nominations) and require both a seconder and the signed agreement of the candidate expressing a willingness to stand, and the nominated individual must be able to attend Vestry.
