What is a my.UUA.org account?
my.UUA.org is an online system offered by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) that enables congregations to view and change contact information for their members, lay leaders, and staff. One of the most important functions of this system is that an authorized person at the congregation (such as an administrator or trusted volunteer) should regularly update the congregation's membership list in this online system.
The member names and addresses that are recorded in myUUA are the way we mail the quarterly UU World magazine to each of your congregation's member households. It's up to every congregation to maintain that list in myUUA so that new members are added to the UU World distribution list, name and address changse are recorded, and former/deceased members are removed from these mailings.
You can also use the myUUA login to maintain your congregation's list of leaders and staff, many of whom appear in the online Directory of congregations.
my.UUA.org will eventually allow individuals to create accounts and edit their own records and (if the congregation enables this feature) to see a membership list of the congregation of which they are members.
Using my.UUA.org, Unitarian Universalists (UUs) and others will be able to register to use other UUA.org services (polls, message boards, etc.) with only one username and password. (The bookstore and GA registration will probably have to remain separate, unfortunately, because they run on third-party services.)
