Getting Started as an UU-UNO Envoy

Getting Started

  • Announce your position as Envoy to your congregation.
    Get your position officially recognized by your congregation. This is usually done through your minister, congregationʼs board or Social Action Committee. Then announce yourself in your congregationʼs newsletter or bulletin.
  • Advertise and participate in UU-UNO programs. Discover the best ways to publicize the UU-UNO in your congregation. Many envoys posts monthly announcements in their congregation's newsletter. Others set up a UU-UNO table during coffee hour. Our programs include our Intergenerational Spring Seminar, mitigation of Climate Change initiatives, Every Child is Our Child Program, advocacy for LGBT human rights at the UN, and activism against gender-based violence and in support of women's role in peace and security. Additionally, talk about your role as an envoy and other ways to get involved with the office including our internship program. Visit the UU-UNO pages for more information about these initiatives or call to speak with Office staff.
  • Create a support network.
    Develop congregational contacts with your minister, director of religious education, youth group, Social Action Committee, peace action task force, welcoming congregation committee, Interweave group and any other person or group at your congregation who may be interested in our work.
  • Get educated.
    Look at our website, talk to UU-UNO staff, and become well versed in what the Office is doing. Build your knowledge so you can articulate what the Office is working on to your congregation. Review this sample timeline.
  • Build an Envoy Team.
    Find a co-envoy, youth envoy, or create an envoy team. Resources on how to form an envoy team can be found on our website.
