Governance of the church – overseeing all issues related to personnel and property – is the job of the Board of Trustees.  Six Trustees are elected (two each year for a term of three years) at the annual meeting of the congregation. The Board then elects a Board Chair, Vice-chair, and Secretary.  The Board also appoints a Church Treasurer and an Assistant Treasurer.  These five persons along with the Church Moderator (also elected at the annual meeting) comprise the six officers of the church.  There are ex-officio members of the Board as well.  These are the ministers, the Director of Administration, the Director of Religious Exploration, the immediate past Board Chair, and two youth representatives, selected by the youth to serve a one-year term.  The open Board meetings are monthly on the 1st Wednesday.  You can email the board with any questions or concerns at board@firstuucolumbus.org
