concerns were addressed at that time. Straw poll voting for the various options began
that day with about 40 people indicating their preference.

To review: Everybody will be given an opportunity to place one dot next to one of the 5
Options to vote their preference. There is no requirement that you make an immediate
decision. The posters and dots will be available at UUCA in the reception area through
March 24 th . There will be more information and activities forthcoming during the time

The Finance Consultant Search Committee identified thirteen candidate firms to request
qualification packets from. Seven of the firms self-selected out of the process while six
firms engaged with the team submitting answers to the committee’s initial questions. On
February 20th, the committee narrowed the list to three firms to conduct in-person
interviews in early March. The team is working diligently and will continue to report out
to the congregation as progress continues to be made.
