Governance and Leadership

Our members are the foundation of the Albany Unitarian Universalist congregation.

The members of Albany Unitarian Universalists are the foundation of who we are. The Board of Trustees, councils, and committees are subject to the authority of the membership, and function to serve the congregation and its mission.

The Board of Trustees is an elected body that determines our matters of policy and management, and oversees its officers, employees, councils and committees. The Albany Unitarian Universalist mission directs these efforts.
