Related and Associate Member Organizations

Covenanting Communities

Covenanting communities are Unitarian Universalist (UU) groups that claim a UU identity but they look and feel different from a traditional congregation.

Covenanting Communities

Related and Associate Member Organizations are diverse groups that embrace Unitarian Universalist (UU) principles and traditions outside of congregations and covenanting communities. They include member and professional organizations, justice-focused groups, camps and conference centers, and more.

Associate Member Organizations are named in the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) bylaws, and are limited to the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee and the Unitarian Universalist Women's Federation, two organizations who have an historic connection to the UUA.

Related Organizations do important work in providing identity groups for Unitarian Universalists, focusing on specific justice work, supporting people working within Unitarian Universalism, and providing unique UU experiences. Related Organizations are in formal relationship with the UUA in order to advance Unitarian Universalist values and claim a UU identity, but are not congregations or covenanting communities.
