Board of Trustees
As in all UU congregations, our Board of Trustees is the governing and policy-making body of our community.
We use the title Board of Trustees intentionally as it represents the wishes and visions of the voting members of the congregation as its main source of motivation in the use of the democratic process.
The Board is elected by the congregation and the congregation votes on major issues and policies for the Board to carry forth throughout the year.
Between Meetings of the Congregation, our Board of Trustees is the policy-making body of our community. Our Board has 7 members including five Church Officers: President, Past President, President Elect, Secretary, and Treasurer, and two additional Trustees.
Elections are held at our Annual Congregational Meeting in May.
Our Nominating Committee assists in seeking out candidates from among the voting members of the congregation. People can also be nominated by notifying the board President or a member of the Nominating Committee at least 20 days before the Annual Meeting
