As we prepare for Ministry Days (which will be held at the Rhode Island Convention Center), we are asking what next adjustment in behavior may lead to increased inclusion and environmental stewardship? To that end we are pleased to announce a new experiment for the 2020 Annual Meeting. On Thursday, June 11, 2020 the UUMA will gather by Zoom to begin our annual business meeting. It is our hope that during this time we can address items that often fall to the end of our agenda and, in doing so, provide more space during the in-person meeting so that no discussions are rushed and all voices are heard. We will continue to live stream, and hope that those who join the June 11th Zoom gathering will also participate during Ministry Days – either on OR off site. A small change, perhaps this will lead to a day where the business of our association includes more of our membership and has less of an impact on our environment.
We are also dreaming of ways to offer programming before we arrive in Providence. Watch this space for announcements of opportunities to be involved, mark your calendars and plan to participate in the 2020 Annual meeting – June 11, 2020 1:00-3:00 EDT.
