We are a welcoming, diverse, self-governing congregation of approximately 300 members. An elected Board of Trustees manages the affairs of our congregation, and committees implement programs and projects. Paid staff handle the day-to-day work required to maintain our buildings, prepare for Sunday activities, coordinate events, and interact with the public.

Along with our minister, the staff includes a lifespan religious education director, music director, admin assistant, church administrator, and part-time sexton.

Elected by the congregation, the Board of Trustees sets policy, conducts long-range planning, and oversees the finances and general well-being of the church. Meetings are open to members of the congregation and held on the third Wednesday of the month from 6:30-8:00 p.m. They are hybrid meetings taking place in the church Parlor and zoom simultaneously (email office@uuithaca.org for zoom link). The church follows a set of bylaws, which are updated through a rigorous process when necessary.

Committees are at the center of church life, providing on-the-ground work in a variety of areas, including buildings and grounds, membership, stewardship, social justice, and religious education.
