Beyond the number of members your congregation certifies annually, how many "friends" do you have—people who might identify as Unitarian Universalist (UU) but are not reported as members? This includes people involved in the congregation who prefer not to join.
The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) is looking for a way to measure how many non-members benefit from the services that our congregations provide. We want to know how we can reach out to those who are not necessarily formal members of our congregations, but who identify with our faith and values.
Do you have to know that these people think of themselves as UUs? No. For purposes of this statistic, assume that there is an affection for, or identity with, Unitarian Universalism if people use the services of the congregation. When in doubt, include them!
Please base your estimated number on a recent twelve-month period of time, preferrably January-December 2012.
Note: This number will not be used to calculate your Annual Program Fund (APF) contribution to the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA).
