UUFRC Governance Model
At the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Redwood City, we work together as a team. Almost all of our positions are volunteer, filled with our members and friends. Our direction and goals come from many sources: our mission and vision statements, our bylaws and policies documents, planning by the Board of Trustees, and guidance from our professional minister and staff.

Positions Elected by Membership Vote

Members of our Board of Trustees and the Committee on Denominational Affairs are elected by our membership during the annual meeting in the spring. See Our Elected Leaders page for more information about these groups.
