Board of Trustee’s Report on Transition to Policy Governance
Since the Board approval of our policy governance structure in February we have done the following:
An Operations Team was established in April and has met twice a month since then. The operations team was formed to oversee the day-to-day operations of the church. This transitional team has included the parish minister, the church administrator, and one lay member of the Board of Trustees. The team discusses the following areas at each of its meetings:
• Practices – Shared Ministry
• People and Personnel
• Asset Management
• Financial Management
The Program Council, consisting of the programs, ministries, and committees of the church, has met twice since February, and will be meeting on a quarterly basis. The next meeting is on September 15. The Program Council is still in the process of discussing its role and functions. Topics at Council meetings have included: Discussion of the JTW assessment and what this means for each program as well as the church. The Council also crafted the Church calendar for the 2019 – 2020 year.
