The Music Leadership Certification Committee* (MLCC), a volunteer committee that reports to the President of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), has jurisdiction over music leadership certification. It makes rules governing music leadership certification as well as policies and procedures related to music leadership certification. The MLCC grants the music leadership credential and governs the rules and policies which apply. The MLCC also has the authority to suspend or terminate a music leadership credential. The MLCC is a seven member committee appointed by the UUA President. The Professional Development Programs Manager and the Assistant to the Director (members of the Ministries and Faith Development Staff Group) are ex-officio members of the committee.
