Members, friends or interested parties can submit agenda items to the President ([email protected]) at least one week in advance of the regularly scheduled meeting .
Members of the Board are elected by the Congregation at the Annual Meeting (generally in the spring). The Board consists of eight members including the President, Vice President, Secretary and Financial Advisor plus three members-at-large and a youth member. The minister serves as an ex officio officer to the Board. Officers and members-at-large are elected to two-year terms beginning on July 1 of each year. Vacancies to the Board during a Board member’s term are filled by the Board appointing a member of the Congregation until the next annual business meeting.
