Nominating Committee

Goal of Position

Identify and recruit UUCW members to serve on the Board of Trustees, the Endowment Funds Committee and the Nominating Committee for the coming church year. This committee’s existence and role are defined in UUCW’s Bylaws.

The Nominating Committee proposes the slate of nominees for elected positions within the church. Ideally committee members would have experience with Board or Endowment Committee functions, and be well-networked into some aspect of our church’s life. Members set their own meeting schedule, with work concentrated mid-December through March.
