Board of Trustees and Program Council


Board of Trustees

We are a democratic society at the UUFCC.  We govern ourselves via the oversight of a Board of Trustees, all who are voted into office.  Currently, our Board of Trustees consists of the President, President-Elect, Past-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and three Trustees. 

The work of the Board is to set policy and to support the work of the staff and committees of the Fellowship. They have fiduciary responsibility for the congregation.  Part of their job is to ensure the congregation is living out its mission.  They listen to the congregation, understand how our Fellowship is being called to act in the world, and then provide leadership to get us there.  The Board also creates an operating budget for presentation at our Annual Meeting each spring, which the members approve.  All Board members attend a daylong retreat at the start of the year to set the year's goals and then meet once a month. Typically each member is part of a Board subcommittee with responsibility for one of the goals.

The current Board consists of:

President: Betsy Allen

President-Elect: Doris MacKenzie

Past-President: Amanda Richards

Treasurer: Peter Jurs

Secretary: Jason Philtron

Trustees: Janet Irons, Claudia Snyder, Stephanie Szakal

Ex-Officio: Minister and  Director of Lifespan Religious Education

Program Council

The Program Council is made up of representatives from each of the teams or committees. They meet on the third Tuesday of the month to discuss and plan program priorities for the congregation, and for leadership development training. The Program Council helps coordinate the day-to-day programs, including the scheduling of events and facilitating collaboration among the various teams and committees. They also work with the Board of Trustees to implement the goals of the congregation.

Current members of the Program Council are:

Chair: Doris MacKenzie

Communications: Libby Gage

Community Life: Elaine Jurs

Religious Education: Laura Liermann

Secretary: Vicky Droll

Service & Music: Laura Kemper

Social Action: Deb Hager

Youth: Andrew Mickle
