Our Governance: Board and Elected Leaders
Each Unitarian Universalist congregation is a self-governing group, charting our own course, choosing our own ministers, and setting our own policies.
The Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees sets policy for the congregation and is elected by the members. The Board works with the congregation to create a Mission statement, along with policies and procedures to make our purpose and mission a reality.
The Board meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm in the Fenn House Chapel.
After a year of meetings and discussions with many in the congregation, the Board led CVUUS members in adopting by-law changes related to becoming a member at our 2017 Annual Meeting. Changes are in bold type as follows:
The minutes for that meeting can be found here: CVUUS Annual Meeting 2017 Minutes The agenda for the 2018 Annual Meeting on Sun, June 3 can be found here: CVUUS Annual Meeting Agenda 6.3.18 The Board’s annual report can be found here: 2017.2018 CVUUS Annual Report .

The staff, including our minister, Rev. Barnaby Feder, includes an office manager, religious exploration director, choir director, sexton, musical accompanists, bookkeeper, and nursery attendant.
To contact any CVUUS staff, board member, committee, or team leader, please phone the office, 802-388-8080 during office hours or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ministries (also known as committees) run specific areas of congregation life, including Facilities, Finance, Worship, and Membership.
The Council of Ministries, including representatives of all the ministry committees, meets once a month to coordinate the work of the church.
