Is it Your Turn at the Table?
Unitarian Universalist churches are fully self-supporting and independent in their governance. That makes us different from most other denominations, in which congregations are subject to binding decisions they did not make. At UU churches, the Board decides the direction of the church based on the church’s mission statement and strategic goals.
Wildflower operates with a seven-member Board which consists of four officers (President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer) and three regular positions. A term lasts two years, and a person is permitted to serve two terms in a row but no more than that.
For summer 2021, we have five positions open: two 2-year terms and three 1-year terms. (One-year terms happen when someone does not complete their 2-year term.)
Because we govern ourselves, it is important that every voting member who is able takes a turn at serving on the Board. It takes all of us chipping in to make this church work, and that includes Board service. Is it your turn at the table? Please read the Board member job description and the frequently asked questions as you ponder that question.
The congregation will vote on those who submit the packet at the June congregational meeting, with new board members officially taking office July 1.
