Members of the church see election news about the offices of our diocese each year as we prepare for our Diocesan Convention. We realize that duties of the offices are not widely known at times. Therefore, the communications office has prepared a brief thumbnail summary of these offices. Of course, the descriptions are only a sampling of the important work that each office and officer undertakes. Full descriptions are found in our diocesan canons and constitution. Additionally, eligibility of candidates is also found in the canons. Diocesan officers and the clergy encourage more and more people consider the ministry of being on a governing board or office of the church.
The Diocesan Treasurer oversees the management of Diocesan funds and of the CFO, controller and other accounting managers. The treasurer also acts as the financial agent for the Diocese.
The Diocesan Council develops, adopts and monitors the annual budget of the Diocese, as well as advises the Bishop on financial issues. A Finance Committee often recommends various budgetary items, however the Council maintains approval powers of the budget. Council also has oversight concerning Diocesan programs, and discusses strategic planning. Diocesan Council meets the first Saturday of the month at the Episcopal Church Center of Utah, those outside of the Salt Lake metro area can often join the meetings electronically.
In addition to being a council of advice to the bishop, the Standing Committee consents to the purchase, financial encumbrance, and sale of diocesan property. The Committee also gives consent for ordinations within the diocese and consent for the ordination and consecration of bishops in other dioceses. It also serves as the ecclesiastical authority of the Diocese when there is no bishop. The Standing Committee also has oversight of the process for electing a Bishop. The Standing Committee meets monthly.
General Deputies will meet in late June and/or early July in Baltimore in 2021 for 12 days. There are also pre-General Convention meetings in Utah.
The Disciplinary Board serves largely under the canons of Title IV of the wider church. The Disciplinary Board is responsible for carrying out the procedures given to it during cases of reported cleric misconduct.
