2024 Congregational Conversation/Annual Meeting Follow-Up

The 2024 Congregational Conversation and Annual Meeting was held on June 2.  Board of Trustees co-chairs Michael Amy Rodriguez Cira and Kurt Merkle welcomed all attendees and called the meeting to order at 11:30 a.m.  After establishing a quorum, the following business items were presented:

  • Director of Administration Alesia Hutto presented the proposed 2024-25 budget in the amount of $848,774 and answered questions from members in attendance. The budget was approved unanimously.
  • Randy Whitt, Chair of the Memorial Endowment Trust, announced that $33,845 in MET grants were awarded for the following projects:
    • Leadership Development Weekend-$6,495.00 awarded to the UUCC BOT.
    • Replacement of Tire Swing/Adding Seating to Playground #2-$14,800 awarded to the ODS Managing Team.
    • Memorial Garden Life Expansion-$3,100 awarded to Congregational Care Team.
    • Elevator Phone System Upgrade-$2,000 awarded to Building and Grounds Team.
    • Sigismund Furniture/Set-Up Overhaul and Enhancements-$1,250.00 awarded to Children and Youth Religious Education (CYRE) Team.
    • OWL Labs Camera to Expand Tech Capabilities-$1,200.00 awarded to Adult Religious Education and Spiritual Development (ARESD) Team.
    • New Furniture for Office Suite/Settled Minister Office/Educational Office-$5,000 awarded to UUCC Professional Staff.
  • Vivian Brenner, Dave Dixon, and Joe Hoff were unanimously elected as new members to the Board of Trustees. They are replacing Ben Baxter, Kurt Merkle, and Gwynne Movius who are rotating off the Board.
  • The proposed revision to Article II of the Unitarian Universalist Association Bylaws was presented for a final vote by the UUCC congregation. After a half-hour discussion in which a number of members expressed their views on the proposed revision, it was approved by a vote of 78 percent for, 22 percent against.  The 11 UUCC delegates to the upcoming UUA General Assembly will vote proportionally based on this outcome.
  • There are four proposed amendments to the Article II revision.  These amendments include the definition of “Equity” (two amendments: Stebbins and Wheeler); adding language of “Reason and the Responsible Search for Truth and Meaning”; and adding “Peace as a UU Value.”  The text of the proposed amendments is linked here. While a vote was not held on each of these amendments, a survey will be sent to the entire congregation to get a sense of how members feel about these amendments.   The results of this survey will be used to inform the UUCC delegates as to how they should vote at the General Assembly.
  • Board co-chair Kurt Merkle and Minister Rev. Lisa Bovee-Kemper gave their updates as to the “State of the Congregation.” Kurt gave an overview of the 2023-24 congregational year expressing optimism about the future under incoming settled minister Rev. Amanda Weatherspoon.  Lisa expressed her gratitude to the staff and her appreciation of the UUCC leadership as she prepares for departure from her role as interim minister on July 1.
