Certification of Membership for Congregations

All Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) member congregations are required to complete the annual Certification of Membership report by the deadline of Monday, February 2, 2015, at 5 p.m. Pacific Time. You will be asked to report the current number of members, statistical information from the last fiscal year, and participate in the Congregational Poll on the Statement of Conscience (SOC) on Reproductive Justice. Submitting this data by the February 2 deadline is one of the requirements for your congregation to have voting delegates at 2015 General Assembly.

To certify online, log in to your congregation's Data Services account using the 4-digit church ID and case-sensitive password.  Every member congregation already has a Data Services account to use for submitting the annual Certification report.

Or, if you already have your own personal MyUUA account, and congregational data-updating permissions are enabled on it, you may log in to your own MyUUA account to complete the certification report for your congregation.  (If you don't already have a MyUUA account, and want one, data_services [at] uua [dot] org (subject: MyUUA%20New%20User) (email us) with "MyUUA New User" in the subject line).

Updating Membership List & Staff Information

Congregations must manage their list of member names and addresses (for delivery of UU World magazine) and staff/leader information (which appears in the online Directory) all throughout the year using the account system.

Individuals who have already been authorized as data updaters for the system may log in to their personal accounts to make these changes. First-time users must begin by completing the registration process. Note: The process for registering a new account and becoming authorized in the Unitarian Universalist Association's (UUA's) system as a Data Updater may take a day or two.

General Information

We offer resources to member congregations, related organizations, districts, and UUA committees. We collect data from UUA member congregations including the mailing addresses of its members (for sending UU World magazine) and the statistical and membership totals supplied by congregations annually during Certification of Membership.

Data Services also provides mailing lists and data to any member congregation, district or related organization for, but not limited to, the promotion of their sponsored events and selected materials, the cultivation of relationships with their constituencies and the calculation of growth analysis.


The Office of Data Services collects data on ministers, districts, congregation members, UU World subscribers, congregation staff, and elected officers. This data is vital—it is published in the Unitarian Universalist Association Directory and analyzed at the district level. Only membership and religious education enrollment totals for all Unitarian Universalist congregations are released to the media; no individual congregation's data is made public.
