Lay Leadership

Temple Etz Chaim has always enjoyed the benefits of spirited, passionate lay leaders who are committed to the longevity and future of our community. These engaged leaders meet on a monthly basis to discuss issues and concerns pertaining to the business of TEC. Our monthly meetings are open to the community and we welcome any TEC member who chooses to attend! In June of each year, a new board is voted on and approved by the congregation at an annual Congregational Meeting. Each year, one half of the board positions change. A term runs for two years and each member may serve for up to two consecutive terms. We encourage you to join one of our meetings and have your voice be heard!
