Register now for one of our fall 2023 Joint Board Retreats. Instead of retreating separately, let's retreat together!
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 programing provides 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. For updates on Our Whole Life (OWL) facilitator trainings, click on the OWL trainings page on the navigation menu. View the full calendar of events.

While contributions from congregations to our Region and Association make it possible for regional staff to do our work, event registration 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 at email@example.com. We do not want cost to keep anyone away.
