Planning: Annual Reports
Discussion of changing the timing and content of the Annual Report. We decided that this issue should be linked to the Strategic Plan and referred to that committee. Our suggestion is to have it include the highlights of the year and visions for the next year. The timing of the Annual Report should also be reconsidered and perhaps be due in November rather than late spring because spring is so busy. Alex will write up a summary of this discussion and send it to the Board for their consideration.
Anti-racism ethos. We would like to see this approach permeate our congregation.
Planning – Goals 2022-23
Advanced Leadership Development: We plan to develop an Advanced Leadershp Training which will include, among other items, how to run a hybrid meeting. Brian will draw an outline of elements it should include. Alex is interested in working on a Task Force to plan this and he will check withJohn Cooney and Chris Stoval to see if they are also interested.
Rob will sign the checks of Committees which do not have a chair
