Governance

The challenge and power of governance belongs to the congregation.

Together, members participate in the democratic process to determine the direction, budget, and priorities of the church. In that process members follow a simplified version of RONR.

We are a fully self-supporting, non-profit organization.

This congregational polity is a cornerstone of Unitarian history and is treasured as both a right and a duty.

“Because I am a member, I don’t just warm a pew – I participate in the process of being a church.”

Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting is held in Hewett Centre usually in November. The Board of Trustees reports on the church year just ended and new board members are elected to replace retiring members.

The notice of meeting, nominating committee report, recommended board slate and proxy forms are posted on this page – at the top of the right column – for downloading when available.

AGM Materials

UCV members are emailed AGM materials as PDF and Word files ahead of an AGM. Links to the PDF versions are posted here when the files are available and have been uploaded to this website. See also Annual Report, the section following this one.

Now the AGM is over, the links are still available here as one of the Board of Trustees posts on UCV Notes.

Annual Report

UCVLogo150wThe annual report lets members know what has been done during the year, both within the congregation and in the wider community, by the minister, the staff, and the many committees and groups. It also reports on the organizations sharing the UCV facilities. It’s an interesting read. Highly recommended.

EGM Materials

All members are sent materials before the meeting. If you cannot attend for some reason, please give your proxy form to someone who can. Or send it to the office.
