UUMA Executive Team Explained:

The UUMA Executive consists of three co-directors managing three content areas: Collegial Care, Lifelong Learning, and Operations. Working together in covenant, the three directors are responsible for the implementation of the UUMA’s mission and vision, "Why the UUMA exists," through the creation of a strategic plan "What We Do."  In addition, each director maintains lead responsibility and authority for specific programs, committees, ministries and functions. The Portfolio Chart below lists these responsibilities and authorities. Complete job descriptions for the directors, and for all of our staff, can be found at the end of this page.
