Board of Trustees

The Board serves the congregation by establishing broad policies for the governance of the church and acting as guardian of its organizational, spiritual, and financial health. Its members are elected annually in March.

The Board meets regularly at 7:00 pm on the 4th Tuesday of each month. The meetings are generally held in the Starr King Room; all church members are welcome to attend. The members of the Board of Trustees can be contacted at board@uuoakland.org.
