Frequently Asked Questions - Governance
A Google group called “ERUUF-Board Forum” has been designed to foster an interactive conversation between the ERUUF Board of Trustees and ERUUF members and friends.
Any member or friend of ERUUF may request to join the group, which will serve as a platform for open discussion about Board and ERUUF business– an interactive way to ask questions of or give feedback to the Board regarding its decisions and actions.
The Board will also use this Google group as one method to fulfill its duty to the congregation to keep them informed of Board deliberations and approaching decisions.
The group will be moderated to make sure that the covenant and guidelines for the group are adhered to and will be a prototype for the new type of interactive web-based platforms that other groups at ERUUF may choose to create. When you sign up, you can choose settings which will allow you to receive posts as daily messages or as daily or weekly summaries in your email. We on the Board look forward to hearing from you!
