Election of Trustees

The rules governing election of parish trustees come from Wisconsin State Statute 187.9 that stipulates: trustees are to be elected "from and by the congregation." Directives regarding election of trustees are contained in the Parish Corporate Bylaws. Parishes must follow these stipulations in order to comply with civil requirements.

Here are the procedures for trustee elections in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and position descriptions for trustees.  These procedures and descriptions are taken from the current Parish Trustee Manual.

Please Note:  At the close of nominations (two weeks before the election) "If there is only one nominee for each position, nominations are closed and the nominee declared elected to the postion."
