What: Article III of our bylaws state “A congregational meeting shall be held in the second calendar quarter and shall be designated the Annual Elections and Budget Meeting.” Agenda items include volunteer recognition, approval of minutes, election of board officers and nominating committee members, review and approval of the 2018-2019 budget and revisions to our bylaws. Materials will be available on the UUFR website on Sunday, May 6.
When/Where: May 20, 2018 immediately following the Sunday service (~12:15pm) downstairs in Founder’s Hall where coffee hour is held. These meetings typically last about an hour and a half to two hours.
Who: All members and friends of the congregation are encouraged to attend. This is an opportunity for us to live our 5th principle: The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large. Members will be given a numbered paddle which will they will use to vote. Our by-laws state that at least 20% of our membership must be present for us to conduct business.
Lunch: A light pizza lunch will be provided, or you may bring your own food.
Families: Children are always welcome with us, but we understand that observing the democratic process may not capture their attention. Childcare will be available (and pizza) for kids in Clara Barton, which is the large room near the main entrance of Peace Hall.
Questions: Our board will be hosting four opportunities when we will be available for questions and answers related to the congregational meeting. Please come in at any time during the times listed below to ask your question. We also strongly encourage you to stop in during the times below OR contact a member of the board if you have questions or concerns prior to the meeting. This will help members of our board be more prepared to facilitate the meeting efficiently.
