The Board of Trustees is holding a Congregational Conversation on Thursday September 29 at 7:00 pm via Zoom. 
Contact office@uuithaca.org for the Zoom link.

The purpose of the conversation is to explain in more detail the adapted leadership and governance structure for the coming year at FUSIT.  We will be operating without a settled or interim minister in the traditional sense of the word.  We do have a Congregational Life team composed of Ms. Emily Richards, Rev. Peaches Gillette, and Rev. Janet Shortall. We are excited to have this talented team. If you haven’t seen them in action yet check out our in-person Sunday celebrations or YouTube recordings. 

The Board has created an Operations Administrative Team (OAT) and a Ministry Visioning Team to handle administrative duties and program guidance that a full-time minister has handled in the past. OAT and MVT will remain sharing governance responsibilities with the Board should a minister be hired in the future. The Board’s hope is that this new adapted governance concept will provide resiliency for our programs and operations during time of minister transition, times without a minister, and serve as support for a minister when one is called.

Please plan to join us on September 29 at 7 pm. Representatives from the Board, MVT, OAT and staff will be present to take your questions and receive your feedback.
