Church Governance

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia is a self-governing, democratic congregation of Members that are governed by congregational Bylaws.  The Congregation gathers for its annual meeting each year in late spring.

The Board of Trustees, our elected leaders, represents the Congregation and conducts its business, subject to the authority granted under its Bylaws.  The Board governs through Board policies and acts on behalf of the Congregation’s mission.

The main issues of governance are reserved for the Congregation including approving church Bylaws, electing the Board of Trustees, adopting the Church budget, and the call of a Minister. The Congregation also elects members to serve on its committees:


Committee Chair’s, President’s and Minister’s Reports

Board of Trustees

A policymaking Board, through planning, responsible management of resources, adopting policies, establishing committee expectations and monitoring performance, governs the UUCC.

The Board holds its business meetings on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:30PM in the Social Hall.  Members and friends are welcome to attend.
