Sunday, June 4, 2023 12:30pm to 3pm

This year’s RRUUC Annual Congregational Meeting is scheduled for Sunday, June 4, 2023, online via Zoom. You can read the proposed meeting agenda here. Because of the virtual reality through which many of our members continue to participate in our Beloved Community, the meeting is being planned as an entirely virtual event with members connecting remotely by Zoom. Zoom instructions, link and password will be provided to voting-eligible members prior to the meeting. Please sign on to the Zoom link by 12:15pm on that day to permit member verification procedures.

At the Meeting, we will conduct the following business:

  • Hear reports from the Board of Trustees, our Ministers, and the Treasurer
  • Learn the results of the online elections of new members to the Board of Trustees and the Leadership and Nominations Committee
  • Vote (via Zoom polling) on additional amendments to our bylaws, proposed by the Board of Trustees
  • Review the 2023-24 budget
  • Review our five-year strategic plan
  • Congratulate awardees for their service to our congregation

We will be using the service Election Buddy prior to and briefly at the beginning of the meeting to streamline the voting process for Board of Trustees and L&N committee elections. Watch the video, embedded below and linked here, for a tutorial. (Note: this tutorial video features a Bylaw Amendment being voted on; RRUUC’s Bylaw Amendments will be voted on during the Annual Meeting via Zoom polling, to allow for discussion.)
