The Board of Trustees held its retreat by Zoom. All current Board members; Robie Evans, Director of Operations; and, Rev. Michael Brown attended. Even though we are governing together, some of us have never met in person. So, we had a long getting-to-know-you discussion. Board President Julie Forest informed the Board that Rev. Michael, who will be serving us through Dec. 31, 2021, will not be serving in the capacity of Lead Minister. The role of Lead Minister will be filled by an Interim Exec Team, aka the Succession Policy's Interim Committee consisting of Julie, Robie, Lay Leader Dave Hunt, and Cora Pendergast, Board Vice President. The Board also spent time reviewing some of our basic governance documents and received a presentation about the seven types of Board meetings and actions provided for in the church constitution. We began brainstorming our priorities for this fiscal year which the Board will produce in its Annual Agenda by the end of September. Finally, in a major change in policy and practice, the President and VP agreed to open up agenda planning for regular monthly Board meetings to include all Board members who want to attend. ~ Maureen McNair, Trustee at Large
