Applications to Join the Nominating Committee for the 2022-24 term

14 March 2022

Applications to Join the Nominating Committee for the 2022-24 term are now open

In this welcome period of transition, the Board of Trustees of the First Unitarian Church of Salt Lake City would like to explore different approaches to governance and lay leadership development. 

Per our bylaws, we have two established committees: the Nominating Committee and the Endowment Committee. In the past, the Board selected members for the Nominating Committee using an ad hoc process. This year, in the pursuit of greater inclusivity and transparency, we would like to pilot an open application process to fill two vacancies on the Nominating Committee for the 2022-2024 period (two-year term). 

The primary purpose of the Nominating Committee is to identify and nominate eligible and talented members for election to the Board of Trustees. To this end, the Nominating Committee actively participates in developing, vetting, and training the lay leadership team of the Church. Members of the Nominating Committee are expected to be familiar with a wide array of members of the congregation as well as understand the diverse skills and talents required of Board members for effective governance.

If service on the Nominating Committee is of interest to you, we invite you to apply for one of two vacancies for the 2022-2024 term using the following Google Form:
