Proposed Revision of our Building Use Policy (being reviewed by the All Souls Board) 

You can read the revised policy here: Building use revision Aug 2016.  The major changes include the following:

*Consolidate, clarify and reorganize text –

*Update – We no longer have a Building Use Committee

*Clarify authority of the Office Administrator and Facilities Manager

*Modify free use by members:

limit use of Conover to once a year for 4 hours;

no free use of Bragg except for weddings and funerals.

*For reduced fee or free use, any professional/ work relationship

must be with a non-profit organization

*New provisions:

Encourage donations by groups getting free use

Church groups should schedule use: no preempting space

All contractual users must schedule use

Provide for use of Audio-Visual equipment & piano

Clarify deposits policy

Restrict use of storage space

 

In relation to this we recommend the “Affiliated Organizations” policy be revised to establish three categories: “Relational group”, “Affiliated Organization”  and  “Sponsored organization”.

The full text of our current policy is the third document below under the heading “Documents” entitled “Policies.”

If you have questions or concerns, please contact board members Chuck Downing or Sue Trowbridge.  A church chat is planned for Sunday, September 11, following the Sunday plus lunch, at which time members can ask questions and give feedback.

 

Treasurer’s job description                                                             

The Board of Trustees has authority (Constitution , Section 5), to define the province and duties of the Secretary and the Treasurer and committees.

Aside from the by-laws the Board has not defined the duties of the Treasurer and we have not had any working job description.

This past spring the Nominating Committee prepared job descriptions to give potential candidates for Treasurer and Assistant Treasurer a better idea of what their duties would be and how much time might be required of them. This also clarifies the separation of duties and authority needed to strengthen our financial controls.

The Audit and Finance committees have reviewed these descriptions and recommend they be formally adopted. Consequently the Board passed a resolution August 17, to do so. The full text of the resolution and job descriptions is available here: Treasurer’s Job Description Text
