Augustana District Council

The business and affairs of the Augustana District are conducted by the District Council. Council members are elected at the Annual Convention of the Augustana District. Their responsibilities include ensuring and verifying that the District operates according to its constitution, bylaws, and Statement of Faith. To this end, the District Council oversees the Boards and District staff. The District Council functions as the Board of Trustees and is responsible to the District Convention for all fiscal matters, including the District budget, revenues, and expenditures. From among its own membership, the District Council elects a chair, vice-chair, secretary and treasurer, and deploys its members to the four Boards.
