Board of Trustees
The First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee is governed by a Board of Trustees, which is responsible for managing the affairs and property of the First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee. The Board of Trustees consists of nine members, three of whom are elected each year at the Annual Meeting and who hold office for three years, or until their successors are elected. The Board meets monthly during the church year to conduct the business of the church and occasionally calls special meetings to discuss important issues. Board meetings are always open to members. Each church committee is assigned a Board Liaison whom the leaders of that committee should contact with any questions or concerns about church policies and practices, or about the budget.
