Spring Congregational Meeting May 20 2012

Be a part of our governance!

As Unitarian Universalists, we share a democratic process in which we elect officers to lead our church according to our established by-laws. In this way, no one person or group holds all the power, but instead the congregation makes important decisions together.

Each year we hold two regular congregational meetings (in fall and spring). At our spring meeting we elect new officers. This year during our meeting on May 20th (after the service) we will also learn about our plans to add a worship service for the 2012/13 church year and we will vote on the settlement of (who would be) our first full-time minister.

If you would like to vote in this important meeting, you must meet the formal requirements of membership: having signed the membership book, made a pledge and contribution of record for the current year (or been approved by the Board of Trustees for a waiver) and be at least 16 years old. Membership at Denton UU Fellowship is free and voluntary. In order to receive voting privileges, you must be a formal member at least twenty-four hours before voting. Membership and participation in our democratic process is also an important way to participate in the future and vision of our congregation.

If you are interested in becoming a formal member of the Denton UU Fellowship, please contact Tesa Morin (Chair of the Membership Committee), Rev. Pam Wat (our minister) or me.

In Faith,
Jim Progar
