Certification Needed to Send Delegates to GA

In order to send delegates to the upcoming June 2024 General Assembly, your congregation will need to submit its annual certification to the UUA. See the announcement below.

With the important vote on Article II on this year’s agenda, we are encouraging all concerned UUs to be aware of the steps needed to send delegates. The General Assembly is completely virtual. Business Delegates can vote and attend without charge.

Every Voice Deserves a Vote!

UUA Certification Announcement

The annual certification period for congregations has begun! Your congregation has through the end of business on Monday, February 5, 2024 to certify your current membership number and financial information from the previous fiscal year; review your congregation contact information and leaders and staff listing; and complete the diversity and congregational questionnaires.

Certification is an essential set in determining Annual Program Fund (APF) requests, proportional delegates for elections and General Assembly, and to compile data about overall indicators and trends within Unitarian Universalism.

More information include a link to the Certification Worksheet and FAQ about certification can be found at uua.org/certify.

Congregations must certify to send delegates to vote!

Just another technique for increasing control by folks who see themselves as essential to proper function of UUA, and members as incapable burdens that must be disciplined, for their own good. I’ve already given up on UUA. Only posting this due to specific invitation. Maybe NAU can resurrect the fundamental Unitarian concepts.

From your mouth to the Gods ears Burton.

I’ve also given up on the UUA. I’m throwing in with the NAUA in the hopes of helping to keep the torch of liberal religion lit for coming generations.

Until NAU disavows the UUA, there is no reason to believe NAU will play a meaningful role.

?? Umm…they have. That is the entire point of their existence. So weird you wouldn’t know that.

We’re a very small congregation and most people are totally unaware of the problem.

Very sad! We heard Rev. Alex Holt today referring to the divisive rhetoric of the UUA.

Anyone have a copy of the Certification worksheet?

Does anyone know roughly what fraction of GA delegates are ministers or paid religious professionals, and what fraction are unpaid congregants? Are there any published statistics on this?
(I ask because if a significant fraction of delegates are ministers or aspiring ministers, and these delegates fear retribution from the UUMA or UU MFC, then this undermines the freedom of the vote.)

It’s as if you read my mind. You seem to know a great deal about this, as if you wrote the book in it or something. Although I believe some images would help to drive home the point a bit more, other than that, this is an outstanding site. I will definitely return.
