Frequently Asked Questions

What is UUA 101?
UUA 101 is a workshop designed to provide basic information about the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations-what the UUA does, how it's organized, how it's governed, what services it provides, how it's funded, etc.

How can the workshop be used?
Lots of ways! In a local congregation, it can be used to inform Denominational Affairs committees, congregational boards and/or councils. It would make an interesting interactive Sunday service or forum program. At the district level, it could be a stand-alone workshop, or it could be a springboard for discussion and input to your district's UUA Trustee. It could also be presented at specialized district meetings, such as presidents' meetings. It would be an excellent addition to Leadership Schools.

Who can present the workshop? It special expertise required?
The workshop was originally designed for UUA Board of Trustee members to present at district meetings, in conjunction with the district's Annual Program Fund Chair. However, anyone who is willing to spend a little time preparing can present it. Supplemental materials and information are provided.

How long does it take?
An hour and a quarter is ideal, but it can be done in less.

Who is sponsoring UUA 101?
It was prepared by the Annual Program Fund Office of the UUA to answer the oft-asked question, "What is the UUA, and what does it do?"

What help is available?

  • Your minister and experienced members of the congregation will be able to answer many questions.
  • Your district's UUA Board Trustee is an excellent source of information about Associational matters, as are your District Staff. Either or both may be willing help with the presentation.
  • Your district's Annual Program Fund Chair is well-informed about the UUA.
  • The UUA Directory, available in your congregation's office, is also a rich resource.
