LUM is governed by a Board of Directors — made up of one representative from each member church plus a few appointed individuals from specific community groups. The LUM board meets each month, overseeing and directing policy decisions, fiscal matters, and programming issues, ensuring that LUM continues to fulfill its vital mission to the community. It is led by an eight member executive council.
Best wishes and congratulations to the outgoing 2017 LUM Board of Directors. A special thank you to the incoming 2018 Executive Council members (pictured L to R above), who are as follows:
