The Leadership Development Committee is beginning the process of forming a Ministerial Search Committee to search out and recommend to the membership a settled minister for the church. At a special congregational meeting, the congregation will vote on a slate of five members who are not currently members of the Board of Trustees. Once that is completed, the Board of Trustees will appoint two additional members so the committee will be composed of seven members of the congregation.
Here are the suggested qualifications of the Ministerial Search Committee per UUA guidelines:
- The search committee should represent the entire congregation.
- The search committee should be trusted by the congregation.
- The search committee should be in touch with the changing nature of the congregation.
- The search committee should be responsible for developing a good process for itself, the congregation, and Unitarian Universalism.
If you have anyone you would like to suggest for consideration (no self-nominations, please), please contact one of the members of LDC: Susan Blackmore, Brenda Cooper, Jeff Graber, or Susan Hawkins.
