Members of the UUFCM
This is your official notice of the Annual Meeting of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Central Michigan (UUFCM), which will be held on Sunday, May 16, right after the worship service. This meeting, while open to all members and friends, is the time when the members of the Fellowship will vote on the business of the Fellowship.
During the meeting, we will entertain motions regarding the slate of nominees for next year’s Board of Trustees and proposals for revising the Bylaws as listed here. After the meeting, electronic ballots will be sent to all members and will be due a few days later. Members and friends are welcome at the business meeting, but only members will vote.
Inasmuch as no names were submitted through the alternative nominating process, there will no nominations from the floor.
The proposed changes to the bylaws are more extensive and a bit more complex than usual. Given the growth of our fellowship and our newly called minister, the Board supports changes to a number of articles. In addition, a member of the fellowship—following the procedures in the Bylaws—has submitted other changes that are not supported by the Board. I ask you to give all of these proposals fair consideration. They will be explained and up for discussion during the business meeting.
Please download and review the documents to the right before the meeting, including the agenda for the annual meeting. At the meeting, you will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you might have.
Please come prepared to participate in this most important democratic process of our Fellowship. Since we are a self-governing body, and each member’s vote is important, we will be voting via email and/or USPS mail, and the specific process will be explained to you at the meeting.
Looking forward to your participation in our annual meeting and in the voting process.
The UUFCM Board
