Also known as the Vestry in non-cathedral parishes, Chapter is the Cathedral’s governing body, responsible for the “temporalities” (i.e., governance and financial management) of the Cathedral. Regular meetings are conducted monthly on the first Tuesday and are open to all Cathedral members, except for special occasions when executive sessions are held.
The Chapter is chaired by the Dean and consists of 12 members of the Cathedral, a representative of the Bishop (the Bishop’s Warden), and two at-large representatives of the diocese. Additionally, the Treasurer, Clerk and Chancellor (legal counsel) are non-voting ex officio members. Chapter members are elected at the Annual Meeting to three year terms. Diocesan representatives are elected to four year terms at the Diocesan Convention. From among the members of the Chapter, the Dean appoints a Dean's (or Senior) Warden and the Chapter elects a People's (or Junior) Warden.
