2015 Annual Meeting

Dear Members of All Souls,

Please join us in the Sanctuary on Sunday, December 6, 2015, at 1:15 pm, for the 2015 All Souls Annual Meeting. We have much to celebrate, including our first year in a newly renovated church, and a lot to discuss as we approach All Souls’ bicentennial in 2020.

The congregation will review and vote on: a bylaws change allowing our trustees to meet virtually; the 2016 budget; the Leadership Development and Nominating Committee (LDNC) recommendations of new trustees and church officers; and the Church Council’s recommendations for new LDNC members. We’ll also welcome new staff members in religious education, membership and social justice, and learn about changes in how our building has been used since the renovation, including our rental agreement with a local charter school.

The meeting will begin at 1:15 pm sharp following lunch in Pierce Hall. Childcare will be provided.

Below, you'll find links to the meeting agenda, the minutes of last year’s annual meeting, the proposed amendment to the bylaws, a report from the LDNC that includes bios of three nominees for the Board of Trustees and five new church officers, and a report from the Church Council that includes bios of nominees for the LDNC.

We hope to see you at the December 6 Annual Meeting. This is our most important opportunity each year to engage in collective decision-making – a vital part of our shared ministry and efforts to build the beloved community at All Souls Church.

Sincerely,
Erika Landberg, Moderator
Mark Mathews, Church Secretary

The Board of Trustees

The congregation of All Souls vests in the Board of Trustees the responsibility for supervising and directing the affairs of the church. Following the All Souls Church bylaws and a policy-based model of governance, which gives a strong charge to our professional staff and lay leaders, the All Souls Board of Trustees has three primary functions.

  • To maintain careful communication and consultation with the congregation
  • To establish policies and goals to guide All Souls' programs and management
  • To monitor the church's performance in carrying out those policies and goals
