7:00 PM Treasurer’s Report (Mark Sugimoto): Vote to approve.

7:15 PM Board Growth Topic:  Where can I find information on how KUUF should be run?

7:25 PM *****OLD BUSINESS *****

Parish Nurse Cost to Fellowship (Terry Mallory): Karen Leader-Scott has proposed, that as part of the Caring Committee, we allow Jessica Ingalls to act as a parish nurse. I have contacted our insuring agency and they provided an updated policy raising our premiums by $326. Does the board approve of the additional cost to the 2018 – 2019 church budget? Our insurance is just to cover KUUF from liability. Anyone filling the parish nurse volunteer position has to provide proof of insurance for themselves. Discussion.

Suggested motion: I move that the board authorize an additional $326 to the 2018 – 2019 church budget to pay for the increased insurance premium associated with providing KUUF liability coverage for a Parish Nurse volunteer position.  


Ask the Finance Committee to write a policy outlining the disposition of funds, received from the lease of KUUF property, not directly allocated to a fund for property maintenance (Eric Harrold): Again, I feel strongly that a policy is needed to transfer funds, not allocated in the leased property budget, into the General Fund to support annual fellowship operating cost. Discussion.

7:45 PM   *****NEW BUSINESS *****

Raise the Paddle Cause (Eric Harrold): Ellen Newberg has asked that the board consider a “cause” for this year’s Raise the Paddle event during our annual Auction. Several possibilities have been suggested: Rail and step improvements for path beside the Matan Bldg; AED for Foyer; AV equipment for sanctuary; computer network upgrade for video conferencing. Discussion.


KUUF needs to revive the Committee on Ministry (Eric Harrold): As KUUF moves closer to having a part-time minister we need to consider the need for a Committee on Ministry. This has been an active Committee in the past and I feel there are important reasons to put it back in place prior to employing a part-time minister. Discussion.


Liaison to the Chalice Circle Facilitator (Eric Harrold): Someone has asked about a liaison for the Chalice Circles. As this is not a committee, and has no elected chair, I presume a board member would be coordinating with the facilitator of the Chalice Circle, which is Selene. Would anyone like to act in that capacity? Discussion.  


2018 Safety Campaign (Jim Franklin/Eric Harrold): The Council is working on developing a Safety Campaign Calendar to outline our greater safety concerns. I believe we (the board) should specifically ask them to include aspects of safety that we consider a priority. Topics that come to mind are: child care security, active shooter scenario, fire drill (kids and adults), earthquake drill (kids and adults), medical emergency, property hazards, building access, etc. Discussion.


8:25 PM Thank you card recipient nomination(s) for July 2018:  

Conversations with the Board Topics: How on that…over.

  • How is the Board communication doing? The board communicates with the congregation in several ways: President’s Column, open meetings, conversation with the board, other (?). Are you getting the word?

For the good of the order

Date of next Board meeting:  Wednesday, 19 September 2018

8:30 p.m. Adjournment
