October meeting, 10.8.19
The Board met at the Christian Science Reading Room, due to the celebration of Yom Kippur at Hillel.
Jerry Wagnon reported for the Sacred Space Team. Two town halls are scheduled this month, October 16th and October 27th, for the congregation to give input on the design of our new church building to the architect, Brian Gibbs, with PACT Design Studio. This is an important month as we move towards our new church home.
We discussed the prospect of having a Second Ask in order to meet our budgeted needs. More information on outstanding pledges and other issues is needed before we can make this determination, so no decision was reached at this time.
Our ongoing need for an accompanist for Sunday worship was discussed. It is clear that our Artist-in-Residence, Joe Daigle, does not have the time needed to continue this search. A motion was made and approved to establish an ad hoc committee to identify a regular pianist and to work with Joe Daigle to hire a qualified candidate. This committee will have an initial budget of $(monetary information kept private) for advertising expenses.
A discussion was begun about how to handle authorization and payment of contractors during the construction phase of the new church. We will work closely with the Sacred Space Team to develop a responsible and efficient set of procedures.
