The Board of Trustees is the legal representative of the church, and is responsible for finances, and for overseeing the work of the church, including operations, programs, and planning.
The Board, in addition to the responsibilities defined for the Officers of the Church, has defined "portfolios" for each member to manage the oversight responsibilities, through facilitation and communication. The committees named within the portfolios are formed as defined in the bylaws.
The authority of the church rests in the congregation, not in a church or denominational hierarchy. Several types of meetings are defined in the Bylaws and by common usage. The Board of Trustees may call a meeting of the Congregation for discussion or decisions on issues of interest. Members of the congregation in good standing vote as required by the Bylaws. The church voluntarily participates in the Unitarian Universalist Association and in the Pacific Central District of Unitarian Universalist Congregations.
