CAUUC Board Covenant
We, the members of the CAUUC Board, covenant together to:
Strive to bring our best selves to our meetings and our work- Assume good intentions
Value each other’s time– so we come prepared – and start and end meetings on time
Clearly and respectfully communicate with each other:
We listen to understand, let people finish speaking, and pause for reflection
We acknowledge and embrace diversity of opinion
We move up, we step back to create space for all voices to be heard –we pause for reflection
When conflict arises, we engage it with grace
We honor each other even when in disagreement, and we Search for Synergy
Hold ourselves and each other accountable to our commitments, the CAUUC mission (UU Principles, congregations, etc.), and this covenant.
About “Moving Up and Stepping Back…”
If you are someone who usually speaks out and shares often, take the opportunity to step back and listen more deeply instead. If you are someone who likes to be in the background, and does not share as often, then take the chance to “move up” and be heard.
