When certifying your congregation's membership number online, you are encouraged to cast a vote in the Congregational Poll, which is part of the Certification form. This year's poll asks your congregation to vote on the proposed Congregational Study/Action Issues (CSAIs) for the final agenda of General Assembly (GA) 2014. There are six proposed CSAIs:
Your congregation may vote for up to five (5) of these six proposed CSAIs. Base your vote on whether or not your congregation, or its representatives, believes the CSAI(s) are complex, specific, and articulated enough to be considered by the 2014 General Assembly. The Poll will place no more than five proposed CSAIs on the Final Agenda for GA. For the proposed CSAIs to be placed on the Final Agenda, twenty-five percent (25%) of all certified congregations must participate in the ballot vote, and a majority of those must vote in favor of placing the proposed CSAI on the Final Agenda. Delegates at GA will hear debate on all of the proposals in the Final Agenda and choose one to be the CSAI from 2014-2018.
You may vote in the Congregational Poll as part of the Certification process, and the deadline for voting is the same as the deadline for the membership certification: Monday, February 3, 2014 at 5 p.m. PT.
You can find comprehensive information about voting in the Congregational Poll by visiting the Unitarian Universalist Association's (UUA's) Commission on Social Witness.
