UUA Presidential Forum Comes to CER

Arlington, VA Presidential Forum March 18, 2023

The first of the a series of four presidential candidate forums, will be held in the Central East Region at the UU Church of Arlington, VA on March 18 at 1 pm ET. You may attend live or online.

The forums are being held to allow delegates and members to learn more about Rev. Dr. Sofia Betancourt. Planned in concert with the Election Campaign Practices Committee with support from UUA staff, each forum will offer both on-site and virtual participation. There will also be an additional forum during General Assembly in June.

All Unitarian Universalists are welcomed and encouraged to engage with the presidential candidate forums and the process as a whole, to ensure our next UUA President may establish the foundation for their leadership with broad participation.

Member congregations of the UUA, through their delegates, elect the UUA President. The campaign for President will take place throughout the first half of 2023 and conclude with an election at our multiplatform General Assembly, online and in Pittsburgh, PA, June 21-25. Voting will open in early June.

One candidate for election was announced by the Presidential Search Committee (PSC) on November 15, 2022: the Rev. Dr. Sofía Betancourt. Read the PSC announcement and the UUA Board of Trustees' statement on the nomination.

No additional candidates were nominated by petition. Read UUA Secretary, Bill Young's statement announcing the 2023 UUA Presidential election with a single candidate.
