Todd Callen – President


A Lutheran from Michigan meets a Jew from New York, marry, have 2 kids, and are in need of a church home in Roswell to

accommodate them all. That’s where UUMAN comes in. Todd has been an active member at UUMAN for 7 years, serving as Stewardship Chair and Worship Associate. Todd enjoys comedy and spending time with his family. Todd is eager to serve UUMAN as the Vice-President, and will bring his strong business experience, sense of humor, compassion, and tolerance to ensure our governance supports the work of UUMAN.

Bob Popp – Vice-President

Bob grew up in upstate New York in a small farming community not far from Oneonta, New York. He attended a Congregational Church with his parents almost every Sunday until he moved away to go to SUNY Plattsburgh. After college Bob became unchurched until his marriage to Rosie and the start of a family. Bob and Rosie both look back and feel very fortunate to have been part of the initial small group of families that came together to start UUMAN in 1991.

Since the very beginning of UUMAN, Bob has been heavily involved in teaching RE to all ages. He also served on the UUMAN Board in the “early days” as the RE Chair and in 2016 as the Treasurer. He has thoroughly enjoyed watching UUMAN grow and change over the years.

Bob has a degree in Physics but has worked his entire career in IT. He and Rosie both are now retired giving their “free” time to UUMAN, NFCC and Family Promise.

Elizabeth Rohan – Past President

I have been an engaged member of UUMAN for 15½ years and a soprano in the Chalice Choir for 14 years.  I have served the church in various volunteer capacities, throughout those nearly 16 years, most recently as President.  We’ve accomplished a lot this year, and I look forward to continuing the values/covenant/mission/vision work we began last year.  Moving to Roswell from Boston in 2003 was a big transition, but once we found UUMAN, I knew I’d found a place where I belonged.  I believe we have a vibrant community with lots of great ideas and energy about how to make a difference in the world.  I hope to help UUMAN grow as we continue Siding with Love.

Colin Decker – Treasurer

I have always had a certain attraction to numbers. During the week I manage a large water plant at work, but also put out a monthly statistical report on the various divisions for the department. I have a MBA in finance from Kennesaw State University as well as an undergraduate degree from Georgia College and State University. Accounting was one of my favorite courses while going through my advanced degrees. I know weird, huh? Took me a while to figure out that whole debit / credit thing, but once I did I found it very logical and a lot of fun. So much so that I run a balance sheet report on my household accounts just to see where I am every month. I look forward to working with the Board to keep our home, UUMAN, fiscally sound.

 

Leslie Wolfe – Secretary

Just over two years ago, my daughters and I came to UUMAN for the first time and decided quickly that this was to be our new church home. Since then, I’ve served on the membership and the Under the Harvest Moon festival committees. I have also volunteered on an ad hoc basis for various events and functions: clean-up after events, gardening, and laundry. I’m looking forward to adding the job of board secretary to my list of contributions to UUMAN.

Jim Nickens – Special Projects Trustee

I first visited UUMAN in May 2014 with Tanya Romine. We joined together in December 2014. Since then I have been involved with the Social Justice Committee, the Worship Committee, the MCY Board, Family Promise, and the Goods and Services Auction. It would be my honor to serve as Special Projects Chair as I am always looking for new ways to be involved and share my time and talents.
