Workshops, Webinars & Trainings
We have temporarily suspended workshops and webinars in the fall of 2017 as we prepare to hire and train new staff members. We will continue to offer OWL Facilitator Trainings throughout the year. Our plans for spring learning events will be announced as soon as they are confirmed.
Learning Events in the New England Region
As a leader in a Unitarian Universalist congregation, you already know the value of connection and the energy that gets unleashed when good-hearted, committed, and soulful people come together. Our workshops and webinars provide ongoing training in some of the most difficult and common challenges faced by church leaders—and will help you deal with problems at a deep, thoughtful level that can lead to meaningful, positive change in your congregation.
We encourage each congregation to register a team of at least four people. Experience has taught us that a group of trained leaders in a congregation can be far more effective than an individual in bringing new ideas back to the congregation. For most workshops, we offer discount incentives for registering a team of four or more—see online registrations for details.
While contributions from congregations to our Region and Association make it possible for regional staff to do our work, event registrations fees are necessary to cover the costs of individual events. We know that not all individuals are in a position to pay these fees. Since the learning is on behalf of the congregation, we assume that congregational leaders will select and financially support participants to come. However, if these fees are prohibitive even to the congregation, please be in touch with us. We do not want cost to keep anyone away.

If there's a specific topic you would like to offer at your congregation to your members and neighboring UU churches, consider requesting a workshop to host.
