2017/2018 BUDGET PROPOSAL: Finance Committee and Susan Welsh, Treasurer.
At our March meeting, the Finance Committee will present a final version of the 2017/2018 budget proposal to the Board for approval and recommendation to the congregation. Board members are encouraged to provide input now to ensure that the March version includes what is needed to fund a successful year to come.
(Action required: Input into the draft 2017/2018 budget).
MATAN BUILDING TOILET REPLACEMENT FUNDING NEED: Eric Harrold.
Buildings and Grounds Chair Eric Harrold reports that the Matan Building toilets need to be replaced with commercial grade fixtures. A funding source needs to be identified. We have also received a request to upgrade sanctuary toilets to accommodate those needing the higher fixtures.
(Action required: Identification of a funding source for Matan Building commercial grade toilet replacement, plus two sanctuary bathroom raised fixtures).
KUUF BOARD SIZE: Ellen Newberg.
The Welcoming and Membership Committee submitted a recommendation that the KUUF Board size be reduced from nine to seven or even five members. At the January 29 Conversations with the Board, the consensus was that a congregational meeting be convened to consider reducing the Board from nine to seven members. If the congregation approves a seven member Board, smooth implementation of a seven member Board requires that one member needs to step down.
(Action required: Discussion of this issue).
Next Conversation with the Board: Sunday, March ___, 2017. Topics?
Board representation is needed at the ”Families at KUUF” meeting scheduled for Feb. 19, 11:45 a.m.-1:30 p.m. A minimum of 1-2 members are asked to commit to representing the Board.
