How do I submit my proposed Congregational Study/Action Issue (CSAI)?

  • It must be submitted online via the Congregational Study/Action Issue Proposal (CSAI) Form. This form is made available online to each congregation, district, and specified Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) sponsored organization early in each CSAI proposal year.
  • The form requires the signature of the certifying officer or minister. Pursuant to the UUA bylaws, a congregation or district may submit a proposed CSAI only with the support of its membership or its board shown by a vote taken at a duly called meeting at which a quorum is present.
  • The form also requires you to identify:
    1. An individual as a person for the Commission on Social Witness (CSW) to contact if questions arise.
    2. A person who will be available to speak as advocate for the proposed CSAI at the following General Assembly. The same person may serve as contact and speaker/advocate.
    3. The name of the congregation’s or district’s president.
  • Preview the items needed by downloading the Worksheet for Congregational Study/Action Issue Proposals (PDF, 1 page).
  • Submit your proposal by October 1 of the year for which proposals are invited (2013, 2015, 2017, etc.).
