 I have two announcements today
First........
On August 8th the board received a petition, signed by 29 people, supporting the idea of giving an individual priority for the position of music coordinator. 
I am here today to do two things...…….


1) To remind the congregation that there are best practices to follow when it comes to hiring staff, and the Board was clear in laying out our process in the Spring.   Trinity's first priority is for the Search Committee to interview and offer the position of Minister to the right candidate.  Once our minister is called they will participate in the search for the Music Coordinator  position.
2) Remind you that parking lot conversations are not a healthy way forward.  If you have a comment or a concern, please bring them to the Board

*************************
Second - to inform you of the Congregational Meeting next Sunday, Sept 20.
