Board Meetings

Every other Monday night at 6pm, the Board of Directors meets to discuss ongoing projects of the UVSS. See below for agendas and minutes.

The UVSS keeps a record of all decisions made at its Board meetings.  If you want to keep an eye on the UVSS and see what legal, financial and political decisions directors are making on your behalf, this is a good place to start. And, feel free to attend a Board meeting anytime! The schedule is on our website here.
