Board Restructuring Proposal

The Board of Directors at TBT has been reviewing the current makeup of the board and have identified changes to the board structure so that it will be more efficient and transparent to the needs of the congregation. At the May 31, 2017 Annual Meeting the Board of Directors will propose by-law changes for the congregation to approve.

On Sunday, April 30, 2017 at 9 AM, an information session will be held to help our congregants understand the proposed changes in the temple’s governance. We encourage all interested congregants to attend.

The motion on changes to the governance structure to be presented to the congregation is:

The Board of Directors recommends changes to the Temple’s Bylaws for consideration by the Congregation at the May 2017 annual meeting. Such changes would establish an Advisory Council and reduce and refine the structure of the Board of Directors.

The recommendation includes:

  • The establishment of an Advisory Council to provide strategic guidance, feedback, and recommendations to the Board and staff on long term Temple vision, financial sustainability, and growth.
  • The reduction of the number of directors on the Board of Directors from fourteen (14) to eight (8) Directors, with each serving as chairs/co-chairs of standing committees or holding a role of similar importance, at the direction of the         president and as recommended by the Nominating Committee.
  • The standing committees of the Temple shall be:
    Adult Education
    Communications and Marketing
    Membership and Connections
    Nominating and Leadership Development
    Social Action
    Worship Experiences
    Youth Engagement.
  • The changing of all language in the current bylaws needed to facilitate the changes in the Board of Directors structure and the addition of the Advisory Council.
