COOM Proposed Charge

Dear AUUC Community,

I wish to invite you to our Annual Congregational Meeting on June 7, 2020 at 11:30 following church services. Our Congregational Meetings are important for putting into practice the democratic principles asserted by our Fifth UU Principle. Our By-laws reinforce this by requiring us to meet as a congregation yearly to elect new officers and receive information from various groups. We also use this time to review our financial status and select the social justice outreach organizations we will
support.

I strongly urge you to attend to exercise your commitment to AUUC. This year, due to the current stay-at-home orders in Virginia, we will be holding our meeting virtually via Zoom. It will be the same link as used for the worship service – just stay logged on. A password-protected link will be emailed to members and friends of AUUC.

Meeting registration will begin at 11:00 a.m. (when services end) until the meeting is called to order at 11:30 a.m. You are encouraged to sign into Zoom as close to 11:00 as possible so that our Registrar can identify members and non-voting attendees, and determine whether a quorum is met.

The meeting agenda is as follows:

1.  Chalice Lighting by Rev. Pippin Whitaker
2.  Opening remarks by Kristina Watts, President of the Congregation
3.  Voting for Election of Officers (see biographies)
     (Voting will be done through a Google Form which will be sent out during the meeting)
4.  Ministerial Reflection, Rev. Pippin Whitaker
5.  Financial Report from Joe Tuggle, Financial Advisor
6.  AUUC into the Future
7.  Conclusion, Kristina Watts, President of the Congregation

Please also see the AUUC Annual Report for written reports from the Memorials committee, COOM, and Endowment, as well as other committees and groups. Please see here for a description of the candidates for the election of our leaders.

Please plan to attend to elect your church leaders and to hear updates on issues important to our church life!

It is important that we have a quorum to elect our officers. Should you not be able to attend the meeting on June 7, you are able to vote by proxy. Please identify someone who will be attending the meeting to be your proxy. Email [email protected] with the name and email address of your proxy. Please remember that each individual attending can only act as the proxy for one person not attending.

This year’s annual report, highlighting our activities and successes in fiscal year 2019-2020 is now available here. Please note that this document includes the required reports from the Endowment & Bequests Committee, Commission on Our Ministries (COOM), and Memorials Committee, which are usually presented live during the Annual Meeting. Please review the Annual Report before the meeting.

Thank you!

Sincerely.,

Kristina Watts
AUUC Congregational President
