The first Sunday in June is designated in BUUF’s bylaws as the congregational Annual Meeting. The 2021 Annual Meeting will take place on Sunday, June 6th, at 10:30 AM. This year’s meeting will be held via Zoom.
We will use this time to:
- Reflect upon the past year (State of the Fellowship report by Beth La Fleur)
- Review and discuss the proposed new 5-Year Strategic Plan based on a variety of input from BUUF members and friends
- Review and discuss the proposed 2021/22 Fellowship Budget
- Vote for Board, Endowment Committee, and Nominating Committee candidates
Members, Voting Members, and Friends of BUUF are invited to attend the Annual Meeting, which takes the place of our usual Sunday service. To prepare, everyone is encouraged to review all available reports and proposals prior to the meeting. Only 2020-2021 voting members are eligible to vote at the meeting. (Please click on this link to see if you are a 2020-2021 voting member.)
Committee annual reports will be posted to our website throughout the coming week. Please review these reports prior to the annual meeting. You can access them here.
Due to the added time requirements and complications when conducting a meeting via Zoom, guidelines for discussion will be introduced. Everyone will have the opportunity to participate in discussions with a two-minute time limit. Participants will be asked to mute their lines when not speaking. Those calling on land lines will be unmuted at appropriate times and asked if they would like to speak. Voting may take a bit longer than usual, but every eligible vote will be counted.
Join us in this annual exercise in democracy. Your input is important.
