The objective is for the Co-Chairs of the Property Committee is to establish small work groups or teams to carry out seasonal/yearly specific tasks associated with the ongoing maintenance of the Church and it’s property.
The teams will work on the property, Building Operations, maintenance, and improvements. Teams will be made up of Tansley congregational members and will be directed by Co-Chairs of the Property Committee.
Continuing the concept of having Co- Chair for the Property Committee has proven beneficial to this important group for Tansley.
Co- Chairs: Kathryn Munn and Bob England
The Co-Chairs report to Tansley Board and Congregation. They are responsible for planning and coordinating the teams in completing the tasks and responsibilities of the Property Committee on a seasonal/yearly basis.
The Co-Chairs will mentor and advise the teams, work with other ad hoc groups such as “Job Jar group” UCW etc.
