Share Your Thoughts with the Board of Trustees by Taking the "Re-Imagining UUA Governance" Survey
As Unitarian Universalists, we hope to move our world “toward more love, justice, and peace.” We cast a broad vision—yet ground it in effective action.
And since 2010, the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Board of Trustees has been engaged in efforts to ensure governance of our Association is more effective, democratic, and inclusive. We’ve made progress, yet the Board has identified three long-standing challenges that remain:
- Our annual General Assembly is not, in practice, very democratic and inclusive.
- General Assembly is not especially participatory and does not promote shared learning.
- There is sometimes poor alignment among leadership roles of the UUA.
The UUA Board and I invite you to explore possibilities for re-imagining governance—from small-scale fixes to broad changes—and comment on them. These are possibilities, not proposals. Please complete the online survey, “Re-Imagining UUA Governance.” It will take 15-20 minutes and will be available through December 20, 2014.
For the future of our faith, please share your thoughts in this important dialogue.
Moderator and Chief Governance Officer
