Our Board of Trustees


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 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.

The Governance Committee advises the Board on bylaw and governing policies issues and assists the Board with educating the leadership, staff and congregation about UUAA governance.

The Finance Team assists the Senior Minister and Board in financial planning for the long term financial health of the congregation.

The Fundraising Team oversees the annual pledge drive and other activities that bring revenue to the congregation.

The Reflective Conversations Team assists the Board with evaluating the effectiveness of UUAA ministries and programs.
