Formation of a Media Communications Committee (Eric Harrold): The Media Communications Task Force, through Jackie Westwood, announced their completion at the last board meeting.

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, Worship Committee and the honored guests. Discussion.

Election of new board officers (Eric Harrold): Election of new board officers is normally the first order of new business at the May board meeting. The following board officer positions will need to be confirmed through a vote: President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary. Discussion.

Secretary: I move that Selene Patterson be elected as Secretary of KUUF Board of Trustees for the 2019 – 2020 church year.


Death with Dignity law and KUUF (Terry Mallory/Lisa Johnson): Our parish nurse and the Caring Committee have been approached by a member of our community asking that one of their loved ones be allowed to self-administer a lethal drug while on our property for the purpose of ending their life. Discussion.


Should KUUF convert two hourly employees to salaried employees (Lisa Johnson): The Personnel Committee has proposed that we convert Brian Kenny and Mike Menefee to salaried employees for the purpose of maintaining their monthly pay during periods of the summer when the choir is not performing. Discussion.


Unfunded expenditures expected during 2019 (Lisa Johnson/Terry Mallory): The board should consider how to fund repairs to our Grand Piano (approx. $6K). If there is an overage remaining once the budget is ratified this year, do we obligate some, or all, of that money to that repair or should we spend money out of savings for this purpose. Discussion.


Should KUUF establish a Community Outreach Committee (Jack Peterson): Is there a need for a Community Outreach Committee? Last year’s efforts to establish a greater connection to other community organizations didn’t meet expectations. In exploring ways to establish these relationships, it has been proposed the board create a committee that would work on reaching out, into the community. Discussion.
