WHAT’S NEW: This is the first year where the CENTER Day programming will be replaced by the February 2011 Institute for Excellence In Ministry. Instead of CENTER Day we will gather for an opening worship service followed by the annual UUA President’s talk and a cash-bar reception. The Wednesday program will follow as in the past with a slightly longer break-out time for collegial conversations.

You may register by filling out the enclosed form and mailing it, along with your payment, to the UUMA office in Boston. You may also register online using a credit card; beginning March 1st. Partners and Spouses are welcome at program events, meals, and for UUMPs meetings but your Partner or Spouse must register. Educational Grants are available from the UUMA to cover thirty Ministry Days registration fees. To request these funds fill out a request form or contact Sarah Lammert via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Preference will be given to those who have not been able to attend programming in recent years. The deadline to submit applications is April 1. Criteria for distributing these funds are financial need, last attendance and first come, first served.
