Making UUMA Events Accessible for All
The UUMA holds accessibility as one of our core values and we are grateful to all the members who are committed to making UUMA events possible for all. Whether contributing time (you can indicate your willingness to volunteer on your registration form) or money (click here to contribute to the scholarship fund), we rely on your participation to create a welcoming event.
Scholarships: Thanks to the generosity of our members, the UUMA is able to provide scholarships to defray the cost of participation in Ministry Days. If a little extra support would make the difference in your attending Ministry Days, please apply for a scholarship (click here). The deadline is April 12 and levels of support include: 50% reduction of the registration fee, full waiver of the registration fee, full waiver of the registration fee plus $100, full waiver of the registration fee plus $200.
Accessibility: 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, video projection screens on both front and back of hall, designated accessibility seating at front of hall, hearing assistance devices, large-print and electronic versions of printed materials, alternate spaces for attendees to rest, separate small-group meeting spaces for individuals sensitive to background noise, gender neutral bathrooms, and gender pronouns on nametags.
In addition, all presenters will use microphones, food buffets will be labeled (menus available before event), volunteers will be available to help with meals and event navigation, and we have created the position of hospitality coordinator to receive and address issues as they arise. If there are additional accommodations we can make, please let Janette know (email@example.com).
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).
