4.0 Global Board-President Linkage: UUA Governance Manual Section Two

The Board’s connection to the Administration is through the President.

4.1 Unity of Control
Only officially passed motions of the Board are binding on the President.

4.2 Accountability of the President

  2. The Board will direct the President through written policies that prescribe the Shared Vision (ENDS) to be achieved, and describe organizational situations and actions to be avoided, allowing the President to use any reasonable interpretation of these policies.

4.3 Monitoring President Performance
Systematic and rigorous monitoring of President job performance will be solely against the only expected President job outputs: organizational accomplishment of the Shared Vision (ENDS), and organizational operation within the boundaries established in Board policies on Leadership Covenant and Expectations.

4.4 President Compensation And Benefits
The Board shall negotiate a contract with the President that will stipulate compensation and benefits for the President.

President’s compensation and benefits will be reviewed in each calendar year after a review of monitoring reports received in the prior twelve months.
