Welcome to Board of Trustee Meetings
Board meetings are open to the membership. This is what to expect when you come.
The meetings follow Robert’s Rules of Order, which means that attendees, other than Board members, are generally observers only. If you have an item you wish to present to the Board, whether you are a committee chair or general member, please contact the Board chair, (see phone number and email address in the Fellowship Directory, Sunday bulletin, or the Uni-Sun).
Committees may also work with their BOT liaisons to present items to the Board.
Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month at 7pm in the Fellowship Hall. Meeting time and place can be confirmed on the calendar – either on the website or in the office.
