Do you get excited by crafting policies and procedures (some of us do)? Are you interested in learning more and helping to refine the guidelines than govern how we operate the church? Or do you have ideas or input in to the process?
The board is forming a task force to change both our bylaws and our practices to ensure we are in full compliance with the bylaws. For example:
What are the rules for board spending outside of the current budget?
Should we form a committee on ministry or change our bylaws to omit that requirement?
If you are interested in serving on this task force, please contact Adam Fass: firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ll start this effort after the holidays, have recommendations in time for the town hall meeting in April, and finalize changes by the congregational meeting in May.
New members and other bylaws non-experts are welcome. This is a great opportunity to learn about church governance and to work with current church leaders on a short-term project.
Whether you want to be on the task force or not, feel free to send any ideas or concerns you might have that are related to this effort.
