Members of the St. Nersess Board of Directors met the afternoon of May 17 in the St. Nersess Library for their semi-annual board meeting. The meeting was presided over by Bishop Daniel Findikyan, Primate of the Eastern Diocese.
The new mobile electronic video conferencing unit was utilized to include five board members remotely. The board reviewed the seminary finances, upcoming fundraisers, and the summer conference alumni social media campaign.
