Responsibilities

As Membership Development Coordinator, Lynne helps create a healthy and engaged congregation by seeing to the care and development of members throughout the entire membership life cycle (visitor, new member, established member, leader). She does this through developing relationships, personal interactions and planning and carrying out programs for membership development and stewardship.

Background

Lynne graduated from Emerson College in Boston with a writing degree and has worked in the non-profit sector since including stints in community organizing, college administration, and as the Development Associate of an umbrella organization that managed Special Needs Schools. Since being introduced to a UU church in 1997 Lynne has learned first-hand that engagement in intentional communities can be transformative. This combined with her growing conviction that liberal religion has a lot to offer our world led Lynne to employment at First Unitarian Society Milwaukee in 2017. Lynne is also a dog mom, aunt, bicyclist and, in those times when she works hard at being attentive, a poet.
