Latvian Evangelical Lutheran United Church of Kalamazoo
Women’s Auxiliary Rules of Operation
All confirmed lady members of the Latvian Evangelical Lutheran United Church are members of the Women’s Auxiliary. The Women’s Auxiliary Leadership Group is elected by the members of the Women’s Auxiliary from amongst its membership. The Leadership Group consists of the chair, secretary and treasurer.
The Women’s Auxiliary is a entity of the congregation and works in concert with the church’s minister, Governing Board, the Latvian School, and the Latvian Girl Guide and Latvian Boy Scout organizations. The Chair of the Governing Board and the minister may attend the Women’s Auxiliary meetings.
It is the charge of the Women’s Auxiliary to help advance the spiritual and material goals of the church by organizing fundraising and other activities, looking after the well-being of the congregation’s elderly, making visits to the ill and infirm, as well as engaging in other service activities.
The Women’s Auxilary has sole discretion regarding how it spends its funds. A simple majority is required to adopt resolutions. The Leadership Group Chair calls a meeting of all members of the Women’s Auxiliary for the purposes of electing the Leadership Group. The Leadership Group prepares an annual report of activities. The Women’s Auxiliary books are audited by the Church Audit Committee. The Women’s Auxiliary Rules of Operation are approved by the Church’s Governing Board.
Should the Women’s Auxiliary ever dissolve, all of its documents and assets revert to the Church’s Governing Board.
