UUC operates under a “Policy-Based Governance Model” within the guidelines of our Bylaws, last amended in 2017. We have an elected, 7-member Board that is charged with setting clear policies that reflect the congregation’s vision and mission. A Program Council consisting of committee chairs and task leaders meets several times a year to insure communication and coordination.
In August of 2016, UUC adopted a new congregational governance structure as we move from a small, Pastoral-sized congregation to a larger, Program-sized congregation. To learn more about our current structure, visit How Our Congregation Works 2016.
An annual meeting is held in early June, and members vote to adopt a new budget, elect new members to the Board, vote on proposed Bylaws changes, and any other matter that requires a congregational vote. An extraordinary meeting can be called at other times, as needed.
