Service as an Officer or Trustee

UU Churches govern themselves, and every member qualified to vote is eligible to be an Officer or Trustee of the Church. The Leadership Development Committee is responsible for selecting a slate of officers and presenting it to the congregation at a semi-annual parish meeting. Nominations may also be made from the floor.

The elected officers of the Board of Trustees are: President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. The four elected Trustees are also a part of this Board, as is the most recent Past President. Additionally elected are members of the Endowment Committee and the Leadership Development Committee.

The Board meets once a month—check the website calendar or your newsletter for the date. Our Board Meetings are open to all. To bring an issue before the Board, contact the President at least a week prior to the meeting, and ask to be added to the agenda.
