What has the Board of Trustees been doing this year?

The Board of Trustees is elected by members of the congregation and represents us in establishing the policies and programs that accomplish the needs and objectives of the church. 

Focus of Activity in 2021-22:

  • Nurture a working relationship based on a covenant of “mutual service in a shared experience of love”
  • Start a process observation practice at the end of each meeting
  • Gather for a “going deeper” session in between business meetings to explore White Supremacy characteristics
  • Start to plan a Visioning process for the church
  • Continue to assess the current governance model.
  • Begin to write Goals (Ends) to help guide the staff in their work
  • Update the church by-laws
  • Through the dedicated efforts of the Treasurer, greatly improve our financial systems
  • Update policies regarding rentals
  • Formalize relationship with Oregon UU Voices for Justice
  • Ensure that financial, physical, and human resources of the church are ethically and responsibly managed.
