The Annual Award for Distinguished Service to the Cause of Unitarian Universalism is one of the most prestigious awards given by the UUA. The Board of Trustees seeks nominations for the 2016 award, to be presented at the 2016 General Assembly in Columbus, OH. Candidates for this award should have, over a considerable period of time, strengthened the institutions of our Unitarian Universalist denomination, clarified the Unitarian Universalist message in an extraordinary way, and exemplified what Unitarian Universalism stands for. Ministers or laypersons may be nominated, and nominations should include supporting information about the candidates. The deadline for receipt of nominations is March 1, and the Board will make a final selection at its April meeting. Please send nominations to: Rob Eller-Isaacs, Chair, UUA Distinguished Service Award Committee, c/o Stephanie Carey Maron, UUA, 24 Farnsworth Street, Boston, MA 02210; or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
