Has Your Congregation Updated Your Leadership Information?
It's that time of the year again. Your congregation has held its annual meeting and elected new officers, or its on your schedule. You have new committee chairs appointed to lead your work for next year. But have you told anyone outside the congregation about these changes?
To help the UUA and the Central East Region stay in touch with the leaders of your congregation we need YOU to update your leadership information on myuua.org. This is the same place you update your UU World lists. Need help? Let us know or check out the webpage with the details. Please note that you can make these updates at any time. Many congregation hold elections in the spring or late fall, but appoint new committee chairs in summer or early fall. Each event should prompt a review of what is listed in myuua.org to ensure it is up to date. Staffing changes should also be listed in this location.
Why can't you just email your primary contact with this information? Well, that won't get the information all the places it needs to go. The UUA holds the main database we pull our information from. While we pull data down from the UUA's database, we don't, as of yet, have a way to send information we have back up the line to Boston. We are working on that, but for now, the easiest and most efficient way to let everyone know about the changes at one time is to update on myuua.org.
Once you do submit an update, it can take us up to a month to get the information filtered down into our database and our email lists, so if you need something updated right away, feel free to email our database administrator, Beth Casebolt (bcasebolt [at] uua [dot] org) to make that update or let your primary contact know. Do tell us if the myuua.org update has also been made when you contact us, that will prevent us sending you back an email asking you to do that.
Questions? Please reach out. We want to make sure that our leaders are getting the information you need.
