Letter From Unity Of The Valley Board President

What does the Unity of the Valley Board of Trustees do? And who is on the Board?

  The Board’s foremost responsibility is to uphold the spiritual purpose of our ministry and to represent the membership in conducting the business of the church. The Board sets policy, authorizes preparation of financial statements as well as a regular review of our financial records. The Board also employs a licensed or ordained Unity minister and approves the creation of other staff positions. Members of the Board initiate goal planning for the ministry that fulfills our purpose. And Board members commit to their own spiritual growth and utilize spiritual principles in the handling of Board decisions.
 
Board members are elected by the congregation. The senior minister is a voting member of the Board. In addition to the minister, there are currently eight trustees:  Bob Panzer (President); Pat Kalk (Vice President); Gloria Johnson (Secretary); John Working (Treasurer); Elliott Williams, Michelle Dickey, Cindy Hulburt and Donovan Ahlquist.  The dedication of this group and their commitment to the ministry is exceptional. Each member is a true leader and a team player, working out the delicate, sticky and the hard decisions that are part of our work.
