This is a recommended procedure for MCCF chair election. The procedure is based on MCCF constitution, and has been practiced since the first MCCF chair election.

Chair Election Committee[edit | edit source]

Current chairs + advisors (UW students only)

  1. If there are less than 7 people, current committee would pick people from the serving team to join the committee
  2. Inform & invite pastor and counselor about the selection/ meetings

The chair election committee consists of current chairs and advisors. If any of them happens to be a chair candidate for the next term, he/she can choose to quit the committee. One person from the committee should be in charge of external issues, such as sending out emails and answering questions.
