UUC Annual Congregational Meeting
Sunday, June 14 at 10:00 a.m. through ZOOM WEBINAR (members in good standing) or Live Stream (all others)
Please plan to attend UUC’s Annual Congregational Meeting on Sunday, June 14 immediately following the (shortened) 9:30 a.m. service. All members in good standing* are eligible to vote on all motions (e.g. operating budget, slate for Board, LDC, and Moderator). The meeting materials including the proposed agenda are available on the church website.
To accommodate our present circumstances, the Annual Meeting will be conducted virtually. What follows is a preview of how the meeting will be conducted. We will send additional information about how to fully participate in the webinar as the date gets closer.
All members in good standing with an email address on record will receive a pre-approved invitation to the Annual Meeting Zoom Webinar. Please retain this emailed invitation for the link to the webinar on June 14 at 10:00 a.m. Note that in the webinar, one connection = one vote. In a household with two church members who each receive an emailed webinar invitation, each member will need to connect to the meeting with a unique device (a computer, smart phone, or tablet) to be able to vote during the webinar.
All members in good standing without an email address on record will receive a printed absentee ballot and a printed copy of the meeting materials at their home address on record. This mailing will also include instructions for participating in the Zoom Webinar by phone instead of computer, for those without a computer who wish to attend. Those who call in with a phone must vote with an absentee ballot prior to the meeting, as voting features are not available to call-in participants.
Any member with an email address on record who would rather vote absentee or call in on a phone instead of connecting on a web-enabled device, please contact Jessica Monahan at email@example.com for a ballot and instructions.
Completed absentee ballots must be postmarked by Wednesday, June 10, to be received in time for counting prior to the annual meeting.
The Zoom Webinar will be Live Streamed simultaneously on June 14 at 10:00 a.m. Check the church web site for information about options for viewing the Live Stream.
*According to the bylaws: “A member in good standing shall have made a pledge for the current fiscal year and have paid in full any pledge or adjusted pledge from the previous fiscal year.” Also, to be a member, you must have signed the Membership Book. If you are interested in attending and voting and are confused about whether you are a “member in good standing,” please contact Byron Krystad.
