UUCB uses Policy–Based Governance, meaning that the Board of Trustees’ job is to set clear policies that reflect the congregation’s vision and mission. The Board empowers staff and volunteers to implement those policies within well–defined limitations.
The Board has established a Coordinating Team that helps volunteers and staff execute the goals set by the Board in its ongoing consultation with the congregation. The Coordinating Team’s progress is monitored by the Board through reports, as well as through direct contact with the congregation and committees.
The Program Council consists of representatives of ten major program areas within the church and meets monthly to improve communication and coordination and provide input to the Coordinating Team.
