Nomination Procedures

The UUA Bylaws provide for nomination of elected positions by two procedures:

  1. Nomination by the Nominating Committee
    • To be considered by the Nominating Committee, an applicant must:
  2. Petition
    • To run by petition, a candidate must:
      • Be a voting member of a UU congregation
      • Secure signatures of at least 50 members of certified UU congregations with no more than 10 from any single congregation
      • File requisite papers with the UUA Secretary by the February 1 preceding the election

The bylaws stipulate:

The Nominating Committee shall endeavor to nominate individuals so that the membership of the Board of Trustees and each elected committee reflects the full diversity of the Association, especially in regard to historically marginalized communities, but also balancing amongst size of congregation, lay and ordained, geography, age (including youth and young adults), and gender, among others. The Nominating Committee shall consult with groups and organizations including those traditionally underrepresented in Unitarian Universalist leadership, to help inform the nominating process.

To communicate directly to the Nominating Committee, nominating @ uua.org.

This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
