How do District Presidents (DPs) communicate between meetings?
Between meetings most communication between district presidents is by e-mail. Please do not share private information on DPs that you will be provided at meetings. The President of the District Presidents Association (DPA) will typically use an address book distribution to current DPs only for communications just for current DPs. There is a uua.org hosted “big list” for DPs and others to share information of a general nature. That is our District Leaders email list. At this site you can also subscribe to the DPA-L list once you are elected DP. The District Leaders e-mail list focuses on issues relevant to district leadership versus congregational leadership or general lay leadership. It is open to all district board members, district committee members, congregation’s denominational affairs committee members, appropriate UUA and district staff and other interested district leaders.
DPA-L is resources for District Presidents. To see the collection of prior postings to the list, you may visit the DPA-l Archives. (Currently archives are only available to the list members.) To post a message to all the list members, send email to dpa-l [at] lists [dot] uua [dot] org.
DPs also typically put their colleague district presidents on the mailing list to receive copies of mailed district newsletters. When the district newsletter is in electronic form, it will be emailed to all district presidents.
