What’s New:

In response to your feedback, we have redesigned this year’s Ministry Days to provide more opportunities for collegial connections. Our events will begin with a simple reception on Monday evening and continue Tuesday, when we will begin our day with worship on the theme Stronger in the Broken Places: Accountable Nurturing of our Shared Ministry. Worship will blend into a time of small group reflection, where we will go deeper into the topic. In place of Vespers, we will end the day with an opportunity to engage the theme through art and spirituality. This year, your registration will include a simple lunch on Tuesday to allow all to eat together and make new connections, and lunch Meet-Ups on Wednesday to let cohort groups gather individually. Wednesday will feature traditional aspects of Ministry Days with the 25/50 Worship Service with the Reverends John Nichols for the 50 year Class and Joan Montagnes for the 25 year class, Annual Meeting, and Berry Street Essay given by the Reverend Leslie Takahashi.

All our events on Tuesday and Wednesday will be held at the Davenport Grand Ballroom A-B. You can pick up your registration materials in the Grand Ballroom Foyer from 2:00‐7:00 on Monday, June 17 or again at 7:30 AM on Tuesday, June 19. The opening reception will be held on the roof-deck patio.

Accessibility is an important aspect of all UUMA Events. Here are some of the things we are planning to help Ministry Days be accessible to all: Scooter cut-outs in both theater and banquet seating, vision screens on both front and back of hall, hearing-assistance devices, designated accessibility seating at front of hall, large-print and electronic versions of all printed materials, alternate spaces for attendees to rest, separate small-group meeting spaces for individuals sensitive to background noise, all presenters will use microphones, volunteers will be available to help with meals and event navigation, creation of a hospitality coordinator position to receive and address issues as they arise, gender neutral bathrooms, gender pronouns on nametags, food buffets will be labeled, and menus will be available before the event. If there are additional accommodations we can make, please let us know. Please be aware that all UUMA events are peanut-free and low-fragrance (please refrain from bringing peanuts, perfumes or other scented cleaning, hygiene, or cosmetic products to Spokane).

While we are excited to see many of you in Spokane, we are also pleased to offer off‐site voting and participation again this year, with improvements made as we continue to learn. In this packet you will find the preliminary schedule of events, information about the Tuesday programming, request for topics for collegial conversations, information on child care, and an initial nominating slate. Off-site registration will be available later this spring.
