Hosting a Board Meeting
If your congregation is invited to host a Board meeting, here are the Board’s expectations.
Our usual practice is to approve minutes of our Annual Business Meeting at the Business Meeting the following year. Since we will not have a PSD Business Meeting in the future, we need a different process for approval of the 2013 minutes of our Business Meeting. If you were a delegate, please review the minutes and send any corrections by June 1, 2013 to Sarah Greene at sgreene [at] psduua [dot] org . The PSD Board will approve the minutes with any corrections, and post those online.
