Policy Handbook

Greater Nashville UU is committed to congregational governance according to the Policy Governance model found in Dan Hotchkiss's book Governance and Ministry: Rethinking Board Leadership.

As of 2017, we are in our 3rd year of transition to policy governance. We are in the process of drafting, reviewing, and publishing our policy handbook. As policies are adopted by the Board of Directors, they will be published here. If a physical copy of a policy is needed, please contact Kris Thresher (kris.thresher@gnuuc.org), Office Administrator or Jennie Gemignani (jennie.gemignani@gmail.com), Board Secretary.
