As a matter of policy, is allowing an outside agency to fundraise on KUUF property something we want to do (Terry Mallory): It appears that some amount of funds were collected at KUUF by a group advocating against the deportation policy. Should KUUF allow outside agencies to fundraise on our property? Discussion. 
ACM agenda development (Eric Harrold): I would like to review the development of the ACM again.  (see the to date printed agenda). Discussion. 

7:40 PM                   *****NEW BUSINESS *****
Formation of a Media Communications Committee (Eric Harrold): The Media Communications Task Force, through Jackie Westwood, announced their completion at the last board meeting. I believe we need to form a committee to continue this work and relieve the burden from the admin staff in managing a routine business that is normally addressed by a committee. Discussion. 
Bondy family sculpture in Memorial Garden (Eric Harrold): The Bondy family has requested to install a new sculpture in the Memorial Garden in commemoration of Elisabeth and Roger Bondy. I have asked the office to include an announcement flyer in the OOS with me as the contact person. No feedback yet. I propose we vote to allow. Discussion.
Suggested motion:
I move the Board of Trustees authorize the installation of a sculpture in the Memorial Garden to commemorate the legacy of Roger and Elisabeth Bondy. 

Consulting Minister’s Contract (Eric Harrold): A four-member panel has developed a two-year, half-time consulting minister’s contract (the panel was Eric Harrold, Lisa Johnson, Terry Mallory, and Mark Sugimoto). The contract has been reviewed and tentatively accepted by our Quarter-time Minister, Rev. Jessica Star Rockers. I recommend a vote of the board to authorize signing the contract after services of May 5, 2019. Discussion.
Recommended motion:
I move that the Board of Trustees authorize a two-year, half-time consulting minister contract be signed on May 5, 2019.


Service recognition Sunday (Eric Harrold): For several months the board has been considering how to thank members for their service and decided to hold a “Service Sunday.” We need to schedule this event with the minister, the Worship Committee and the honored guests. Discussion.


KUUF delegate credentials for General Assembly (Eric Harrold): The UUA has given us three delegate credentials for GA in addition to two others; one for the minister and one for a master religious educator. We have several people going to GA and I need to assign the credentials. Vote on who receives credentials.
