Governance


Overview

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.
