Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is responsible for carrying out the business of the congregation as a legal nonprofit entity. The fifth principle of Unitarian Universalism is that we shall affirm and promote right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large. Therefore, all positions on the UUCC Board of Directors are filled via annual elections. The new board term begins each year on July 1 and ends on June 30. Only members of the congregation may vote and run for board positions.
