Nominating Committee. In accordance with our congregational Bylaws, the Nominating Committee consists of five members, including the immediate past president of the Board of Trustees and four members elected by UUCC Members for a term of two years. The committee’s role is to prepare a slate of candidates for the succeeding term of all offices that are due to become vacant. This includes seats on the Board of Trustees, the Endowment Board, and the Nominating Committee. The committee interviews all nominees and announces a slate of nominees at least thirty days prior to the Annual Meeting.

At the Annual Meeting, UUCC’s President calls for further nominations from the floor for each office. Nomination for any elected position may be made from the floor provided the nominee has consented. A brief statement of the nominee’s qualifications and any other pertinent facts must be presented.

The Endowment Board consists of five members elected by UUCC members. It is responsible for management and administration of any and all endowment funds of the Congregation. This includes stewardship and investment of assets, solicitation and acceptance of donations, acknowledgement of donations, maintenance of appropriate records, and determination of portions of assets for use by the Congregation. More details about the Endowment Board may be found by clicking on the UUCC Bylaws.

In community,

UUCC’s Nominating Committee
