2023 Leadership

The SMHC Board of Directors has a regularly-scheduled meeting on the first Monday each month. These are held at Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church. All SMHC members are welcome to attend the meetings. Visitors who are not members may attend, but will need a Board member to preapprove. Members, please contact a Board member (contact info in your member handbook) to confirm your attendance and to get meeting time and directions. Due to holidays and other reasons, Board meetings may be rescheduled or postponed, so please contact a director before attending. Contact information for our leadership can be found in our printed Handbook.
