        These volunteers are elected for two year terms to represent the congregation in decision making. They meet monthly to consider a wide range of issues, from ongoing budgetary, programmatic, and operational issues to visioning the future. Many of the Vice Presidents work closely with committees consisting of both lay and professional members.

Board of Directors

        The Board of Directors is comprised of 30 elected members who serve for three-year terms, and each year 10 members' terms expire. There are also lifetime members, including each Past President. In addition, each President makes up to 7 appointments to the Board annually, for a one-year term. The Board meets 8 times per year, and the meetings are open to the entire congregation.
