Statement on the 2019 Moderator Election

With gratitude to the Moderator Nominating Committee, the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Board of Trustees is unable to announce a candidate for nomination to the position of UUA moderator by the February 1 deadline. In their search and deliberations, the Moderator Nominating Committee discovered that the job of moderator requires more time than many volunteers are able to give to the Unitarian Universalist faith movement. This is particularly true as we strive to make the position accessible to someone who is not yet retired nor has the financial means to do the job as it is currently perceived.
