The Personnel Committee manages the Fellowship’s business relations with staff, including pay, benefits, annual reviews, and recognition. The Committee is responsible for being certain the Fellowship is in compliance with Federal and State labor law and maintains the Staff Compensation and Benefits Handbook. Additionally the Committee supervises the staff hiring process and annual performance reviews and develops annual compensation recommendations for Finance and the Board. Finally, the Committee is available to hear and address employee grievances.

Committee Activities:

  • Coordinate and oversee the hiring process
  • Coordinate and oversee annual performance evaluations
  • Recommend annual compensation changes
  • Together with staff, draft, maintain and update as necessary position descriptions
  • Maintain the Compensation and Employment Manuals
  • Be available to staff to intercede with employee grievances
  • Be available to staff to resolve questions related to employment policies

Meeting Schedule:

  • second Monday in February
  • second Monday in April
  • second Monday in September
  • second Monday in October
  • ad hoc meetings if and as necessary

Volunteer Skills Needed:

Because staff are as important to the success of our programs and operations as is the building, Personnel Committee members should have a willingness to work on behalf of staff and the Fellowship to be certain staff are adequately supported in carrying out their functions.

Because the committee meets just four times annually, unless special meetings are needed, the time commitment is not large.  But the job is important so Committee members need to be prepared to participate fully in deliberations. Good listening skills important.
