Our operational committees keep our church operating smoothly. The operational committees report to the Board of Trustees, and any questions should be sent to board@first-unitarian-pgh.org.

Finance Committee

This committee supports the Treasurer and the Board in defining financial policies and procedures, as well as providing oversight for implementation of these policies and procedures. Contact finance@first-unitarian-pgh.org.

Investment Committee

The Investment Committee is responsible for supervising the investment of funds held by the Endowment Fund, as described by article VI of the Church Bylaws. The Investment Committee also provides advice on the investment of large gifts received by the church. The committee meets between 1 and 4 times a year. The committee consists of 5 members who are appointed by the board annually and always includes at least two board members. This is specified in the Church Bylaws.

Nominating Committee

This committee meets once a year to discuss possible nominees for the Board and the Nominating Committee. After discussion, we vote on the proposed candidate, rank them by that outcome, and phone them.  Members are elected for 3 year terms.

Personnel Committee

The Personnel Committee is a Board level committee and advises the Board as well as the senior minister regarding church personnel considerations and practices. The Personnel Committee is responsible for the Personnel Policy Manual. The committee assures that position descriptions are in place and appropriate, facilitates the performance review process, and serves the church staff in resolving personnel related issues. Members of the committee are appointed by the Church Board.
