special congregational meeting – Sunday, dec. 14, 12:15 pm
On Sunday, December 14th at 12:15 USSB will hold a Special Congregational Meeting to vote on Reverend Julia as our next Lead Minister. The vote to call a Lead Minister requires a very high level of participation from Members, needing at least 216 affirmative votes to call a Lead Minister. It is important that every member gets their vote counted.
- Absentee ballots may be picked up Sunday, December 7 between 8:45 and 2:30. You may also call the office at 965-4583 to request an absentee ballot be mailed to you. In order to be counted, completed absentee ballots must be turned into USSB by 12:15 (time of the vote) on December 14th.
- Members may vote by proxy (a self-designated representative who comes to vote in your absence). Each member attending the meeting may hold one proxy. Proxies should be dated, signed and state the name of the member to carry the proxy.
The quorum for a Special Meeting is 50% of the membership counted as present, or voting by proxy or absentee ballot. We have 509 members at the time of this notice, therefore the quorum to conduct business is 254 Members.
- The affirmative vote of at least 85% of members present and voting is required to call a minister.
