Community Governance

The Community is a self-governing entity. We follow a governance model which has been agreed upon by Community members. We elect Community leadership whose members serve for staggered terms, and we hold participatory Community meetings to which all Community members are invited.

Community Governance Model
Our current governance model was officially adopted by the Community in June 2015.

Community Leadership
Community leadership consists of a Guiding Council of three members representing important Community constituencies. Please refer to the Community Governance Model for more information about Community Leadership. The current Community leadership members are:

Community Meetings and Community Leadership Meetings
The Community Leadership meets as needed to conduct its internal business, and any Community member is welcome to attend a Community Leadership meeting, unless part or all of a Community Leadership meeting may be a closed session to allow for discussion and resolution pertaining to sensitive issues.

General Community meetings are held as needed, but usually four times per year.

Meetings are typically held immediately following a Sunday liturgy. Please refer to the Community Governance Model for additional information about Community meetings.
