A message from Board of Trustees Representative Scott Kopischke
At the last Board of Trustees meeting, we set aside ten minutes to review last year’s goals and to set new goals for this year. Ten minutes was not nearly enough. After about thirty minutes of probably the best church board discussion I can recall, we had crafted three goals for the coming year that combined concrete and immediate action with thought-provoking and far-reaching priorities. I believe these goals speak to the ideals of UUCW and its members. And remember, these goals are not just for the board. The board will use them to direct our thinking and planning for the next year, and the goals can only be accomplished with the combined efforts of the trustees and the congregation.
As excited as I am about the goals, I was more excited about the caring, constructive, engaging manner in which they were developed. You could sense the concern that the trustees felt about their charge, their desire to reach, but not overreach. Their desire to be specific, but open-minded. I look forward to more meetings where we speak our minds in kindness and work for the best future for UUCW and our world.
UUCW Board Sets New Goals for 2021-22 Church Year
At its meeting on August 26, the UUCW Board reviewed the goals it set for last year, and crafted new ones to guide the work of the church as we enter the new “program year” (September to June). These goals represent both current projects and longer-term aspirations. If you have questions, suggestions or comments about the goals, email email@example.com.
Goal #1: The continuation of our work to dismantle white supremacy culture and other linked oppressions.
New goal #2: Mindful of the health and spiritual well-being of our members, continue building community as we move through the pandemic and transition to multi-platform services.
New goal #3: Develop and begin to implement a long-term financial viability plan for UUCW.
