Our congregation elects Executive Board members at our annual spring meetings. These leadership positions are filled by volunteers. You can read more detail on Our Governance page.

To find out when and where the next meeting will take place, go to our Events page. Members and friends of the congregation are welcome to attend and to address the board.

Important Announcement from the UUCT Executive Board

On Sunday, January 28, 2024, Len Adams stepped down as UUCT Board President for personal reasons.  On the same day, the UUCT Executive Board voted to approve Chase Den Beste as Board President. 

The Board also voted to approve that Len Adams will remain on the Executive Board as President-Elect, a sixth voting member.  Len’s term will run until June 30, 2024.  At that time, the Congregation will elect a new President-Elect for 2024-25.  

Chase’s term as UUCT Board President will continue through the next fiscal year, ending on June 30, 2025.

The UUCT Executive Board appreciates your support and cooperation during this time of transition.

Executive Board Members:


“I am thrilled to put my FSU Juris Doctor and Master of Social Work degrees to work for this congregation!  The UUCT is a safe, welcoming community for all people who desire to affirm and promote “the inherent worth and dignity of every person.” (UUA First Principle). I am serving on this Board, in part, to help a) develop and maintain a positive work environment for our staff and volunteers; and b) promote the UUCT’s services to more people in our surrounding area.  Please know that I am always glad to hear critical feedback paired with potential solutions.  I look forward to meeting with you… if I haven’t already!”

“Serving on the Board at UUCT provides an opportunity for me to “pay it forward”.  UUCT is a place where I have a community of friends and many opportunities to work together to make a difference.”

“At Unitarian Universalist Church of Tallahassee, my interests have been both vocational and theological. Unitarian Universalism gives me a theological space in which I can fearlessly question Christian orthodoxy, while remaining true to my progressive Christian convictions. Vocationally, UUCT offers a loving community among whom I have the opportunity to practice the work to which I feel called. In the coming year, this includes serving on the Executive Board.”

“I like serving on the UUCT Board because I like to assist with congregational individual input/output and enjoy discussing our issues at UUCT with others in our congregation. We are an outspoken bunch and that makes all our lives interesting. I learn from each interaction and each board meeting a little more about our business, the work that needs to be done, and each member or friend. It is a challenge in this epidemic environment; however, I believe everyone should have a voice in our decisions.  This past year has been a challenge and I expect this next year will be as well.”
