The Search Committee When a vacancy occurs (or is about to occur) in the office of Bishop Ordinary, and the Primate is satisfied that there is adequate financial provision for the office to be filled, the Bishop’s Council of the Anglican Military Ordinariate will create a Search Committee (see section 8 below) to: (a) determine any specific qualities or additional qualifications that might be required or desirable with respect to the person elected to fill the vacancy; (b) identify potential candidates and determine whether they are willing to stand for election; (c) prepare for the Electoral College a short list of electoral candidates; (d) assemble for the Electoral College relevant background material, references, and other information concerning the electoral candidates on the short list; and (e) generally do all things necessary to organize the election process. 4.
