USR Governance Structure

The USR is governed by a Board of Trustees, which is elected by the congregation and adheres to a set of bylaws approved by the congregation.

There is a Program Council, which is headed by the Vice President of the Board, and is comprised of the Membership Council, Ministry Council, and Social Responsibilities Council. Committees, programs, task teams and functions associated with membership, ministry and social justice fall within these individual councils. Individual councils and committees report directly to the Program Council, and through this Council, to the Board. The Program Council is responsible for the day-to-day programming for the USR.

There is a Nominating Committee, which is elected directly by the congregation. Its role is to foster leadership development and to select nominees to serve on the Board of Trustees and the Nominating Committee.

The Stewardship Council, Facilities Council, Safe Congregation Response Team report directly to the Board of Trustees.

The Board of Trustees, Program Council, Nominating Committee, other councils and teams, and minister and staff work together towards furtherance of the USR’s mission and vision. The Board, Program Council, individual councils, committees, programs, teams and functions are comprised of dedicated volunteers. All congregants are warmly welcomed to participate in the work of our beloved community. Please contact council or committee chairs to find out more about the ways that you can become involved.
