Survey of Opportunities for Service at TUUC

Are you looking for an opportunity to serve our beloved community? Not sure which position would best suit you? Is there someone you think would be good at leading our congregation? This survey is a project of the Nominating Committee. We want to hear from you and give the congregation the chance to have their voices heard! Below you will find a listing of all the leadership opportunities TUUC has to offer. Please take a minute to read over each of them and indicate which you wish to be approached about. This could be now or in the near future. We want leaders at TUUC who will further our shared Mission and Vision. We also know that these leaders would benefit from those who have served before them. If you have previously held an elected position, please check the corresponding box to assist in building a strong network of Mentors for our leaders.

Please participate. TUUC needs your help! You are free to check any number of boxes that apply. Towards the end there is a section where you can express what types of training you feel would best prepare you for such a needed opportunity. When you are done you can press the "submit" button (online) or mail the survey back to TUUC. The address is given. In order to provide a complete slate of candidates at our June congregational meeting, the Nominating Committee requests a response by April 5th. Thank you for your shared time and talents!
