The UUMA has made a commitment to move to more electronic communications. To save paper and postage we have posted the UUMA Annual Meeting Packet to uuma.org. To view the materials click here. We will be mailing paper copies to those who have requested - if you wish to receive a hard copy please email Hannah Franco-Isaacs before May 13. Please take a moment to read the important annual reports provided by the UUMA Board of Trustees members and staff. The packet also includes the agenda for the Business Meeting and Ministry Days Program. Please take the time to review the information online and make special note of the expanded schedule of the annual meeting.
To accommodate a virtual meeting space and to allow the greatest percentage of membership participation possible, we will hold our business meeting in three parts. During the first gathering, after a quorum has been established, the membership will vote on the rules for the gathering. After a presentation of reports, the meeting will be suspended to allow the membership time to review and study the proposed reports. At the second gathering, after a quorum has been established, the membership will have the opportunity to debate the proposals on the floor. At the conclusion of the debate, the meeting will be suspended to allow for voting (by electronic ballot) on the proposals before the membership. At the third and final gathering, the election tellers will announce the results of the election and new officers will be installed. All portions of the meeting will be recorded and made available to those who were unable to attend.
In order for us to be prepared for the meeting, please have any motions for consideration or items to be presented under “Other Business” communicated electronically to Board Secretary Wendy Bartel, email@example.com, before 5:00 PM EDT on Monday morning, June 1.
We will be using the UUMA’s online learning platform to present both Virtual Ministry Days and our Annual Meeting. To learn more click here. To register or participate in the event, navigate to uuma.org and click on the Online Learning tab in the main menu. While registration will be available through the entirety of June, those who register before June 1 will receive a special gift.
Please contact Wendy Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org, or the staff with questions or concerns.
We look forward to seeing you there,
Your UUMA Staff & Board of Trustees
