Board Committees

Board Committees support the Board in its work to fulfill the UUCM Mission. The Board and committees work hand in hand establishing goals that support annual Governance and Ministry Goals. As leaders, they investigate, write reports, make recommendations, and gather information that allows the Board to make practical and prudent decisions for the Community. 

Most committees are ad hoc and have a single focused purpose that is typically achievable in one year.

These are groups of dedicated individuals who carry out the shared ministry of this Community, offering opportunities to serve, to connect to others, to grow, and to offer one’s skills and gifts.

If any of the Committees below intrigue you, they would be glad to connect with you.
