UCC Constitution and Bylaws: Proposed Changes Feedback – Could you take the survey?

UCC Constitution and Bylaws: Proposed Changes Feedback – Could you take the survey?
Greetings!

After General Synod 30, the United Church of Christ Board of Directors stated its intent to obtain feedback on constitution and bylaw amendments which were considered but not ratified at General Synod.  This is your opportunity to provide input to help guide our work.

The Board of Directors and Officers seek to remove obstacles which inhibit effective governance.  In order to proceed in taking those steps, your feedback on the constitution and bylaw amendments will help the Governance Committee to craft and the Board of Directors to present proposals which reflect input from across the United Church of Christ.

We are asking our ministry partners to participate in this process in order to gather feedback on proposals from General Synod in 2015.  The Governance Committee has been tasked with gathering this information and utilizing it to meet the goal of providing effective governance.  Your feedback will help shape any proposals brought to General Synod in 2017.

On average, the survey should take between 20-30 minutes. Please provide your feedback no later than August 16, 2016. To take the survey, click here.

We ask for your thoughtful consideration as we strive to do the work of our beloved United Church of Christ.  We ask for your prayers for the leaders of the United Church of Christ in this process.  We pray for your work and ministry in this world. We also, pray for our world, that somehow, in the work we all do, it becomes more just, more inclusive and more attuned to God’s love.

Sincerely,

Dale Bonds
Chair, United Church of Christ Board of Directors
