Congregational Meeting Recap

Congregational Meeting Recap

At our Congregational Meeting on June 6th, the Board of Trustees shared five goals for the coming year, introduced new Board candidates, gave an update on our finances, and more! A full recording of the meeting is available online. You can also view the individual reports on the YouTube playlist, below.

The report from WellSprings’ President Chris Chepel includes details on five new congregational goals for 2021-2022. They are:

  1. Assess, strengthen, and build on WellSprings’ partnerships in the community.
  2. Test and develop new ways for WellSpringers to connect with our congregation both online and in-person.
  3. Re-establish our identity as a UU Teaching Congregation, by adding a Ministerial Intern to our Staff Team.
  4. Increase revenue by 15%, to meet our current expenses and provide cost-of living increases for all staff by FY23. Develop a multi-year strategy to bring all staff to fair compensation levels.
  5. Increase opportunities for people of all ages to experience belonging at WellSprings.

We are incredibly grateful – especially after the events of the past year – for the service of departing Board member Sharon Bader. Two WellSprings members, Bill Cabin & Tonie Scullion, are running for an initial, 2-year term on the Board. Current Board member Julie Choi is running for re-election to a second, 2-year term.

We hope you’ll cast your vote for our three Board candidates by June 16th.

Our gratitude goes out to every member of our congregation who’s helped to hold this community together – in big ways and small, from near and from far – over this unexpected, twisting and turning year! We look forward to being together again, in person, later this summer.
