Announcing the May 20th Congregational Meeting and Upcoming Town Halls
As we prepare for the closing of another program year, like others before, we gather at our Congregational Meeting. We come together, exercising our democratic process to set the course for the next year.
Last year -you might remember- we made a bold decision about our future. We asked questions, we cried, we rejoiced, and together set ourselves on an incredible journey. In that journey we learned a lot about this place and each other. In witnessing this event, I have learned that we are a strong and visionary congregation.
This year, we will vote on a new slate of candidates for the Board and Nominating Committee and 2 Bylaws changes. Our Board developed these changes to honor the wisdom of our youth and respect the time and contributions of our members. *We are no longer moving forward with the Healthy Relationships Team bylaws change. Please review the enclosed update for more information about this change.
As entrusted stewards, we present these changes and invite you to attend the Town Halls and discuss the proposed bylaws. We invite you to ask questions, share your thoughts, and, as always, express yourself by voting at the Congregational Meeting.
Please take the time to review the enclosed information: Meeting Agenda, Board & Nominating Committee slate of candidates, and proposed bylaws changes. If you have any questions about the meeting or proposed changes, please email me. We will compile these questions and answer them on a rolling basis. After the Town Halls we will publish the answers and make them available to the congregation before the meeting on May 20th. I look forward to seeing you at the upcoming Town Halls.
