Officers, Clerks, and Coordinators

The following are the current officers, representatives, committee members, and task coordinators.

All officers (except Treasurer, Financial Secretaries and Statutory Agent), the MARCC representative, and task coordinators serve one-year terms renewable up to six years. For information about the terms of the Treasurer, Financial Secretaries, Statutory Agent, Wilmington Yearly Meeting Permanent Board representative, and Burial Committee members, please see the Cincinnati Friends Handbook

For officers, Burial Committee members, representatives, and task coordinators, the year that appears after the individual's name is the year when that person's term began. For committee members, the year that appears after the individual's name is when that person's three-year term expires. An asterisk (*) next to the year indicates the person's second three-year term. Each person can serve a maximum of two consecutive terms before taking at least one year off that committee.

Officers, trustees, Ministry & Counsel members, and at least two members of the Nominating Committee must be members of the Meeting. The minister and Clerk of the Meeting are also ex officio members of Ministry & Counsel.
