I got my copy of the current Unitarian Universalist Christian Fellowship newsletter (Good News) in the mail yesterday.
Seems the UUCF board has “discussed [and implemented] a model [of leadership] based on the UUMA Exec Board, with board members having defined portfolios.” The four “major portfolios” are Events, Publications, People, and Vision. This is a far sight better — I hope and guess — than the laundry list of committees the UUCF had when I was a new member, back in 1991.
Can anyone give the UUCF some advice on this model? Anyone have good tips based on real-life church or organization experience? I know it isn’t rare or rocket science but it would make a nice change from the “all Carver Model discussion, all the time” rut Unitarian Universalists have gotten into.
