MidAmerica Regional Assembly 2020 featuring Taquiena Boston (version 1)

Please save the date for our upcoming Regional Assembly (RA), which will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Church, Rockford, IL, on Saturday, April 18, 2020. Our keynote speaker will be Taquiena Boston, Special Advisor to the UUA President for Institutional Inclusion, Equity, and Change. The day will feature worship, the annual business meeting, lunch, keynote presentation, workshops, and a presentation from members of the Commission on Institutional Change. On Friday evening, April 17, the UU Church in Rockford will graciously host an evening gathering for those in town. Reverend Matthew Johnson, minister of the Rockford Church, will be in touch with clergy about a regional Unitarian Universalist Ministers Association (UUMA) gathering on Friday, April 17. 

We have heard your feedback and there are changes in this RA! First, every room at RA will have a microphone. In addition, we have shortened the event to one day for those who cannot stay away from home very long. We will also live stream the annual business meeting and keynote speaker for those who are interested but not able to attend (Note that only those on site will be able to vote in the business meeting). Information will be forthcoming on workshops. Save the date and we hope to see you there!

RA 2020 has a graphic logo and poster you can share with your congregation.
