The Board appointed Charlie Scholz to chair the Stewardship Committee for the next year, and he will build a committee to help with year-round Stewardship. Charlie has some great ideas to help us get on track. Charlie will build the committee to help implement. Thinking of Stewardship as more than the annual Pledge Drive will be a new challenge for the UU Church of Las Cruces, and we’re excited to begin this work.
Absentee Ballot Process
Joel Courtney and Lyn Pearson presented a proposal to implement absentee voting for Membership Business Meetings. The Board is working to refine this, in anticipation of our Membership Budget Meeting in December. More will be revealed, once the procedure is finalized.
The Board is ready to finalize and polish governance procedures. We’ll meet in “retreat” to do this toward the end of August.
Congregational Safety Committee
The Board created a committee to review and recommend safety policy and procedure to the Board. If you are interested in participating, please notify Sally Atkinson or Joel Courtney.
In Faith, Sally Atkinson and your Board of Trustees

Emma’s Revolution is returning to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Las Cruces and will entertain us with timely and thought-provoking original music. They were last here about a month after President Obama was inaugurated, and some of us still have the “Peace, Salaam, Shalom” T-shirts they decorated in honor of the occasion. They’ll be releasing a new CD at this concert –
