The design of the Board Meeting is very simple. We gather on the Tuesday afternoon as a full Board to discuss major business. The goal is to offer Board members the opportunity to give appropriate scrutiny to any proposal and share any concerns or thoughts. Then on Wednesday morning, we have the Business Meeting, where all the votes are taken.
In the plenary, there were two items for discussion – namely, the revised designs for the Welcome Center and the continuing conversation with General Theological Seminary.
I do admire our Board. The conversation was rich and textured. Our trustees take their responsibility seriously. They know that they have a duty of care to this place. The past has provided us with a strong institution; our responsibility is to give to the future a Seminary as strong as the one we inherited. So, I was grateful for the discussion. Thank you.
