Our Board of Trustees

Board of Trustees Sept 2016

Governance of UUAA is overseen by a 9 member elected Board of Trustees (Board). It is the Board that represents the congregation in setting the vision for the future of the Congregation. The Board delegates responsibility for implementing that vision to the Senior Minister. The Board works with both the staff and the Congregation to create a Strategic Plan that prioritizes the goals to be achieved by staff and lay ministries. The Board is responsible for monitoring the financial health and monitoring the overall operations of UUAA.


Lay Teams That Assist with Governance

The Shared Ministries Team helps with congregational governance and congregational operations by receiving, reflecting on, and directly responding to feedback from the congregation, including feedback related to the professional and lay staff of the congregation, the congregation’s policies, and its ministries and programs. Their primary goal is to support and nurture the overall health of the Congregation and its many thriving ministries. You can email the Shared Ministries Team by clicking on this link.

The Leadership Development Team helps teach congregants about UUAA governance and how to be an effective lay leader. They recruit members to run for the Board of Trustees.You can contact them at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
