183rd Annual Meeting of the First Unitarian Society of Chicago
05/20/2018 Sunday 11:30 am
This meeting has already taken place. For related documents, please visit the Governance page and in particular, Congregational Meetings.
We gather each year as a congregation to make vital decisions about who holds leadership positions, the budget for paying for church operations in the coming church year, which organizations receive the Give Away the Basket offerings that we collect twice each month, who will represent us as delegates to the UUA General Assembly in June, and amendments to our bylaws. This year two amendments are proposed, giving us more options for scheduling the Annual Meeting in future years, and simplifying the article on councils and committees.
Those who have been members for at least 90 days and have contributed at least $50 of record during the 12 months preceding the meeting (or for whom the ministers have waived that requirement this year) are eligible to vote.
Formal notice of the meeting will be sent by May 4, and will include the complete text of the proposed bylaw changes, which were the subject of a hearing on March 25. Attend the budget hearing after the service on May 6 to get a copy of the proposed budget, and to learn and ask questions about it.
