Our Board of Trustees is made up of nine members elected by the membership who serve staggered three-year terms. Staying in close touch with the congregation, the board articulates the UUCC vision through our Mission Statement, Ends Statements and Governing Policies and, referring to those policies, monitors the work of the Coordinating Team and other professional staff.
The Coordinating Team is the leadership group responsible for day-to-day operations. It includes Minister Jay Leach and Director of Administration Alesia Hutto.
The Board speaks primarily through its written policies, which are decided by discussion and voting. Each trustee is involved in other activities at the church, out of personal interest and as one way to connect with other members.
The UUCC has been operating under a form of Policy Governance since 2004. Under Policy Governance the Board of Trustees focuses on the congregation’s vision and goals rather than the details of managing the organization. The Board sets broad policies and then gives staff the freedom and authority to make day-to-day decisions as long as they are operating within the constraints set by those policies.

Exploration & Discovery: An Inspiring UUCC for the 21st Century
Over the past ten years, our Board has led the congregation through several rounds of “envisioning our future,” each one an effort to discern what this spiritual community is collectively called to be as we pursue our Mission and Ends in the greater Charlotte area. In June of 2016, we adopted our new Vision. Click here to view the document.
