Above Board: May Congregational Meeting

At the congregational meeting on Sunday, we heard the good news that the Maintain Our Momentum (M.O.M.) campaign received enough funds to restore the Welcome Ministries position and RE Assistant position to their 2008 levels and voted to support this effort. We unanimously recommended Terry Davis as a ministerial candidate and approved important changes for our bylaws.

Also at the May meeting, we elected new members of the Nominating and Leadership Development Committee and Board of Trustees and thanked our outgoing members for their years of service. I am grateful for the many gifts that Doug Abell, Shirley Adams, Michael Dangerfield, Mary Sherman, and Laura Yamashita shared with our beloved community during their years on the UUCA Board of Trustees, and an extra big thank you to DeAnn Peterson. It has been an honor to serve with her and I am glad she now has time to bring her passion and wisdom to other service opportunities at UUCA.

On behalf of our continuing board members, John Guyton (Finance Trustee), Gordon Love, Marshall Orson (President-elect), and David Smith, we welcome Ellen Beattie, Penni Dudley, Kristen Indermark, Pam Kilmer, Cyndi McFarland, Eric Pohl, and Joetta Prost to the UUCA Board of Trustees.

Our board meetings are open and all congregants are welcome to attend. Our next board meeting is June 4 at 6 pm. Beginning in July, we will meet on the fourth Thursday of each month at 7 pm. We’ll be delving into training and orientation at a leadership retreat in June and look forward to a wonderful new board year.

Laura de Castro
President, UUCA Board of Trustees
