Board Minutes:
 
In response to inquiries and the issue of transparency, the Board, after much discussion and keeping in mind the issue of privacy, has initiated the following procedure. 
 
A binder will be kept in the library which will contain one year of Board Approved Minutes, starting January 2015.  The minutes will continue to be available via e-mail or hard copy upon a request to the office administrator.  Hard copies will have to be picked up by the individual. 
 
If there are any questions please contact the current acting chair Joan Prochnau or any member of the Board for clarification.
 
Members/Adherents Attending Board Meetings:
 
There have been inquiries about members/adherents being able to attend Board meetings.
The following is taken from the Governance Policy of First United:
 
Any member/adherent of the Congregation may contribute to the agenda of a Board meeting and attend a regularly scheduled Board meeting as a Non-voting member,
by providing notice to the Chair of the Board at least twelve (12) days prior to the regularly scheduled Board meeting in order for the concern/issue to be placed on the agenda.
 
Any member/adherent of the Congregation may attend a Board meeting as an observer to the meeting by providing notice to the Chair of the Board at least seven (7) days prior to the regularly scheduled board meeting. 
As an observer a member/adherent will not partake in any Board discussions and will not have voting privileges.
 
Any member/adherent attending a Board meeting with a concern/issue will only discuss their particular issue, state their concern/issue and answer questions the Board may have. 
The member/adherent will not partake in any decision making discussion that the Board may have.  Where a response from the Board is warranted, it will be given to the member/adherent regarding their concern/issue as soon as possible, in writing, after the Board has had time to discuss, evaluate and if necessary research the concern/issue.
 
When the agenda is such that confidentiality and "in camera" discussions must be observed, the observer will be asked to leave at that part of the agenda.

 
Acting Board chair, until May 19th, is Joan Prochnau  -  Next Board meeting is May 19 at 6:00 p.m.
