Board Anchor

Board members demonstrate a deep commitment to their spiritual lives, as well as a passion for service. They dedicate themselves to serving the SLC community for a period of three years. Each Board member brings specialized professional and personal skills, which may include business, finance, construction, real estate, education, volunteer services, communication, health and technology experience. 

The Board also recognizes that staying connected has been difficult for many during the pandemic. You are important to us and we want you to know you are loved and missed. If you would like to receive periodic Wellness Calls (once or twice a year) click on the link below to email Claudia Norton, Board Trustee, to Opt-In for Wellness Calls.  Wellness calls are different from the Prayer Chaplain monthly calls which you can also Opt-In for by visiting the Prayer Chaplains tab under Connect.
