The UUFCO Board of Trustees holds regular meetings that are open to the membership.

UUFCO elects incoming Board members at our Annual Meeting in May.

Board Covenant

"We, the Board of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Central Oregon, covenant to serve the congregation's mission as well as the members of the congregation.

 We will create an atmosphere of compassionate candor by presuming good faith, actively listening, not interrupting, and staying in relationship with one another, even in conflict.

We will respect our time together by honoring our committments, being prepared for meetings, and handling non-meeting business outside of Board meetings.

We will focus on policy, not micromanagement.

We will stand by our group decisions and speak with one voice.

We will continually learn as a Board and deepen our practice of Unitarian Universalism."
