As this issue went to press, Board President Jack Duggan was attending the Unitarian Universalist Association General Assembly in Kansas City. So we will use this space to share with you the new “Ends” adopted by the Board at its May meeting. In policy-based governance, ends statements are intended to provide guidance for decision-making to volunteers and staff, based on the congregation’s mission and vision.
