Secretary of the Board of First U Needed: We’re Recruiting!

Are you someone who likes to be in the room where it happens? You’re interested in learning about the governance, policy-setting, and budgeting process at First U? Experiencing discussions of new ideas for growth and worship and programs ranging from religious education to social justice? Helping to chronicle the decisions and actions of the board and congregation for the record?

If so, please consider volunteering to become the Secretary of the Board of Trustees. Primary responsibilities include attending and taking minutes at monthly board meetings and at congregational meetings such as June’s Annual Meeting, and getting them posted to the website. Board meetings range from fun to serious, and you’ll experience both the sense of humor and sense of business of the Board. This is a non-voting position on the board. It can be a gateway to serving in a voting position on the board in the future if nominated.

Please give this some thought—we need a Secretary! If you are interested in volunteering or knowing more, please contact Margie Gonwa, Board President, at or 773-415-4882.
