Right Relations Task Force Report to the Board

October 19, 2018

Board Policy Manual Section IV.C.8. stated an intent that the Board of Trustees ensure that the Congregation develops a Covenant of Right Relations. In 2016, Cedar Lane began conversations around covenanting and, in October 2017, the congregation voted to approve our current CLUUC Covenant of Right Relations. It is now part of Board Policy Manual Section I. As a next step, the Board of Trustees is focusing on ways to ensure that the Covenant is understood and followed.

With our Unitarian Universalist Principles & Purposes, the CLUUC Covenant of Right Relations, governance structure, and the CLUUC Vision & Mission as the foundation, the Board charges a Right Relations Task Force, comprised of Cedar Lane members, to work closely with the Ministry Team to develop a process to learn, communicate, and practice the ideal of right relationship as part of congregational governance and membership. The process should include a fair and equitable plan to address conflict when it challenges the safety and well being of Cedar Lane. The Task Force reports to the Board and is expected to provide monthly updates. The Task Force should complete its work by July 1, 2018 or request an extension.
