UUCV uses a democratic process to elect the governing Board of Trustees. The congregation also approves officers from among that board. Becoming a member of UUCV gives you a vote in that selection process.

The role of the Board of Trustees is:

  • to carry out the mission of the church,
  • to provide a supervisory role for the organization, and
  • to maintain a set of policies and procedures consistent with UU principles.

We work closely as a team with staff and other volunteer committees to do the work of the church. If you have a question or concern, please feel free to email the Board at govboard@uucvan.org.

UUCV is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) which is the national association of UU churches, congregations, and fellowships. We are also in the Pacific Northwest District (PNWD) which spans Oregon, Western Idaho, Washington, and Alaska. These associations provide resources, support, and fellowship to the congregation.

If you are interesting in learning more about our governing practices, these documents may be useful to you.
