Commission on Appraisal
Meeting: November 12-15, 2015
The Commisson on Appraisal (CoA) will meet this Thursday through Sunday at Pendle Hill, a Quaker retreat center. This will be our first in-person meeting with only two hold overs from the past Commission, so our agenda is a work in progress. We will be selecting officers and other positions, will review the CoA handbook, and the CoA preliminary report.
A Preliminary Report on Class in the Unitarian Universalist Association
The Commission on Appraisal is pleased to submit to the 2015 General Assembly:
This report is by no means finished. We are presenting it not as a complete work that is ready for publication, but rather as a summary of what we’ve learned so far, a list of many questions that remain to be answered, some thoughts on actions that we can take based on what we know now, and some recommendations for further study that might be undertaken to pursue this topic, either by the future Commission on Appraisal or by some other body.
Grounded in the living tradition of our free and responsible faith, yet charged with acting independently, the Commission’s mission is to provoke deep reflection and to evoke timely, creative transformation of Unitarian Universalism, our congregations, and the Unitarian Universalist Association.
