The Nominating Committee reviews the membership of committees, councils, commissions and boards appointed by the Presbytery and Synod and prepares nominations for the meetings where members will be elected. It arranges the ballots so nominees may be elected. The Committee makes recommendations to the Presbytery or the Synod of appropriate people, in order to assist them to make wise use of the people resources of the Church in the work of committees, councils, commissions and boards. The Nominating Committee must ensure nominations submitted to the Presbytery or Synod are representative of the diversity of men, women and young people and of the city and rural members in the Church.  As all changes to Uniting Church in Australia committees/councils/boards must be presented to the Synod Standing Committee meetings between the Synod and Presbytery meetings, changes must reach the General Secretary’s office (10) ten working days prior to the next Synod Standing Committee Meeting to  Nominations received after that date may be put to the subsequent Synod Standing Committee Meeting. Synod Standing Committee meetings are held on the second Monday of every second month commencing in February each year.
