Convenors are volunteer leaders who serve our community for a 3-year term by supporting the operations of First in partnership with staff, committees, and other volunteers.

Convenors are appointed by the Board in consultation with the current group of Convenors.
The Convenors are formally installed by the congregation using the Charge to the Convenors and Board of Trustees.
