The NYSCU was organized in 1825 and was the principal denominational body for Universalist churches in New York State until 1961. Today the NYSCU administers two endowments and holds annual meetings. One endowment provides service gratuities for retired New York State Universalist ministers and their spouses; the other promotes the growth of Unitarian Universalism and preserves the Universalist tradition through grants and loans. Additionally, the NYSCU appoints the majority of the Board of the St. Lawrence Foundation for Theological Education, which administers a third endowment for the support of students studying for the UU ministry.

The New Massachusetts Universalist Convention is an organization of individual Unitarian Universalists devoted to fanning the flame of Universalism in order to inform the Unitarian Universalist movement today and to help light the way toward the future. We believe that the gentle and healing religion known as Universalism, of late only a byway trod by relatively few UUs, has the potential to become a highway of renewal for the UU movement as a whole. Our thrice-yearly newsletter is sent free for the asking to any address in North America. We publish pamphlets and brochures, maintain a Speakers Bureau, and sponsor an annual conference.

The members of Universalist Convocations are Unitarian Universalists united to explore and draw from the heritage of Universalist experience and faith in order to inform Unitarian Universalism today and to help light its way toward the future. We hold an annual convocation in the spring at a host church voted upon at the previous convocation. We alternate between the Northern and Southern parts of the country with the host church creating the theme and program.
Rev. Richard Trudeau, President; Rev. Janet Bowering, Vice President; Ms. Peggy Ward Rawheiser, Secretary, Ms. Peggy Jones, Treasurer
