Activity time: 0 minutes
Materials for Activity
- A directory of Unitarian Universalist congregations in your area
- Latest issue of Interconnections, a Unitarian Universalist Association monthly newsletter for professional and lay congregational leaders
Preparation for Activity
- Consult a directory or the website of your Unitarian Universalist District to identify lay and professional leaders at nearby Unitarian Universalist congregations.

Description of Activity
Together, examine the latest issue of Interconnections. Note that most articles lift up new Association-wide initiatives and/or congregational best practices, and that the audience includes congregations of all sizes.
Plan a field trip to another Unitarian Universalist congregation to learn more about one of their committees, task forces, groups, or initiatives. When you visit, identify one or more "best practices" to share with your own congregation.
Work with your minister and governing body to design an annual renewal of covenant for the leadership and the congregation, or an annual recognition of volunteers.
