Our Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is the visionary body of Saltwater Church, asking and answering the question, “Why do we do what we do?”
Saltwater Church has six Board Members. These individuals are nominated and elected into their positions and typically serve a 3-year term. Officer roles include Board President, Board Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. The Treasurer may be a Board Member or another member of our church. The Board will also supports the committees of the Board, the Healthy Congregation Team and the Nominating Team, and the Taskforces convened by the Board; the Reopening Taskforce, the Pandemic Taskforce, and the Safety Taskforce. If you have any questions about the work of the Board feel free to reach out to any of our Board members. Their email addresses can be found in the directory or by contacting Katherine, our Office Administrator at email@example.com.
Board Focus for this Church Year
The focus of the Board’s work for this church year has been split into two parts. In Fall/Winter, the Board will be reading and learning together through the UUA report Widening the Circle of Concern. We are learning how we as a faith can move forward to be truly welcoming to all people. In Winter/Spring we will be facilitating a visioning process for the congregation informed by our learnings in the Fall.
The 2021-2022 Board of Directors are:
The Board of Directors meet monthly from 7-9 p.m in the Saltwater Church Zoom Room. All church Members are welcome to attend virtually. In November and December of 2021 the Board meeting will be on the third Wednesday of the month from 7-9 pm due to the holidays. Starting again in January and through the rest of the church year, Board meetings are on the fourth Wednesday of the month. Please let the President know if you plan to join us, and introduce yourself when you sign in.
We are currently updating our website with more recent meeting minutes. Thank you for your patience.
Safety Taskforce: The next Safety Team Meeting is scheduled for January 20, 2022 beginning at 7pm. It will take place in the Church Zoom Room.
This team’s primary responsibility is for nominating board members. Team members serve a two-year commitment. The meeting time is variable. If you are interested in participating on the nominating team, please contact the current President of the Board for additional information.
Healthy Congregation Team
Why have a Healthy Congregation Team at Saltwater Church?
At Saltwater Church, we recognize that occasional conflict is natural in any organization and that the difference between healthy and unhealthy organizations is not whether conflict is present, but how it is addressed. We want to address conflict in a healthy manner, and the Healthy Congregation Team helps us to this.
More specifically, the Healthy Congregation Team has three purposes:
To promote healthy communication practices within the congregation.
To consult with any member of the congregation regarding how to deal with any situation that has the potential for conflict.
To help resolve conflict between members of the congregation.
