Nomination form for 146th annual convention

Click here to see a description of all positions
Nominations for election of diocesan-wide offices at the 146th annual convention of the Diocese of Southern Ohio, November 7, 2020.

Nominations are requested to be submitted by September 23, 2020 and must be received no later than October 23, 2020. No nominations will be accepted from the floor, except for any position with no candidates.

This form is for self-nomination. You are required to answer all questions below and submit a photo for the nomination to be complete. In addition to responding to the questions on the nomination form, nominees will be expected to participate in an online nominee forum on October 27, 2020. Contact Jon Boss at if you have any questions.

You will also be required to provide a nominee video to show at the pre-convention meeting (you will also be live and available to answer questions as they come in) on October 27th.  These videos will need to be between 1 and 2 minutes long (this is a hard time limit – videos we receive over 2 minutes will be edited down).  Think about these as your elevator pitch – reflect on your answers in your nomination form, let us know what you are passionate about; this is your chance for the people of the Diocese to get to know you!

We are offering 2 ways of getting these to us – if you are comfortable filming yourself, we have a Dropbox link where you can load your video.  If you are not comfortable recording your own, contact Tammie Vanoss at to set up a Zoom meeting with you and record for you.  She will be adding footers/headers to the videos, so if you choose to upload your own, they must be video only, NO text overlays.

Here is the link to load your video (you DO NOT need a Dropbox account) – please make sure the file name includes your name:

The deadline for file upload and Zoom recording is October 19th.
