The Board of Trustees is responsible for representing the Membership
between meetings of the Congregation.
The Board's primary responsibilities are helping Membership determine
the Mission and Goals of the Society and then
monitoring the Society's progress in achieving the desired ends.
Developing the methods of achieving the desired ends and executing
plans is responsibility of the Society's Executive Team. The
Executive Team reports regularly to the Board, and the Board is
responsible for evaluating the Executive Team's results.
The Board adopted a set of Governance Policies on October 10, 2000
which clarifies responsibilities and reporting. These policies are
modeled on the Policy Governance® theory which is described more fully
on the Unitarian
Universalist Association General Assembly workshop site, on John Carver's page,
and elsewhere on the web.
The policies of the First Unitarian Universalist Society of San
Francisco are available in two different formats.
