How do I create a my.UUA.org account and log in?
A my.UUA.org account is for you personally; each person has a separate account and they should not be "passed down" from one person to another. Every registered username gets permanently linked to the original user's contact information.
To set up an account, go to Register for a my.UUA.org Account and complete steps 2 and 3 only (skip over step 1). You will be asked to create a username, password, and email address (yours, not your congregation's). The system emails you a confirmation message containing a link you click to verify your address.
Next, you will be asked to identify yourself to the system so that my.UUA.org knows who you are. When you log in at my.UUA.org Contact Information for the first time, the system asks for your name and address (not your congregation's) to match you with your personal record in our database. You have to identify yourself only once; after that, when you log in, my.UUA.org knows who you are. If the my.UUA.org system can't find you in the database, email Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) data_services [at] uua [dot] org (Data Services) or call (617) 948-4654 during office hours.
Hint: If you receive a personal copy of UU World magazine, you can enter your UU World ID number (the number above your address on your copy of the magazine), to speed up this process.When you successfully log in, you will see a main menu with options to update your personal information.
If you are authorized as a Data Services Updater for your congregation, you will need to data_services [at] uua [dot] org (subject: Data%20Updater%20permissions) (contact Data Services) (include your full name, congregation name, and your role at the congregation) to request that we apply "data updating" permissions to your username. We'll respond within one business day. These data-updating permissions are necessary in order for you to view and edit congregational data once you are logged into your account. With those permissions enabled, you will see links for updating information about the congregation, including the membership list, so that the UUA can send your members UU World magazine; your leaders and staff, so that they are listed in the UUA Directory; and authorizing other members of your congregation to use the system.
An instruction manual (PDF 14, pages) and a one-page my.UUA.org Cheat Sheet (PDF) is available. We strongly encourage all Data Services Updaters to review this manual before using the system for the first time.
