Report from the Board – 29 August 2021

Our August Board Meeting doubled as our annual Board Retreat.  We discussed the updated Human Resources Policy at length, needed to seek some clarification from the UUA, and hope to approve it finally in September. 

UUFM finances ended on a high note for fiscal year 20-21 with net income being higher than expected and a good ending balance in cash as well as investments.  We paid a bit over $20,000 for the masonry work on the outside of the building in July and we will be replacing the door and the flooring in the Alsop room soon

During our retreat, we spent some time talking about our personal and board strengths as defined by the Clifton Strengths Assessment.  Interestingly, as a group, the Board is very high in strategic thinking skills, good in relationship building, but not so high in executing and influencing skills.  But we now know who to call on to follow through with specific tasks.

We spent the rest of our time looking at the possibilities of what our fellowship could be and do in the future, keeping in mind our recent mission and vision statements.  I will be bringing you a message from the Board on Sunday, September 12, so plan to tune in or travel to the Fellowship in person that Sunday.

My best to you!     Judy
