OBIC Board Highlights — Special Meeting — May 2024

OBIC Board Highlights — Special Meeting — May 2024

Did you know that UUCC owns ~90% of the entity that is the Owen Brown Interfaith Center? We share ownership with Christ United Methodist Church (CUMC). You can learn more about this arrangement here.  

The success of OBIC is integral to the success of UUCC: not only are we financially responsible for the operations of OBIC, but OBIC is a tangible way we live our pluralistic values here in Howard County. 

OBIC is its own 501(c)3 nonprofit separate from the two owning congregations with its own management, staff, and board of directors. UUCC is represented on the board by 5 UUCC congregants. This year’s representatives are Linda Adcox-Kimmel, Ed Gaddy, Gregory Seidman, Lindsay Thompson, and Richard Yocum. 

To help UUCC congregants understand and learn how to support OBIC (and UUCC as a result), our UUCC OBIC directors will share highlights and updates from the OBIC board here in this Good Governance blog.


The OBIC Board met over Zoom on May 14 for a special meeting to adopt the revised bylaws. The Board amended several times the bylaws as revised before finally adopting them. The revised bylaws now await ratification by UUCC (at the Annual Meeting on June 2) and CUMC (at the Church Conference in the Fall). The Board closed by reaffirming May 21 for the next meeting.
