QandABringing Resolutions to a Vote by the Congregation- Please join members of the Board of Trustees and the Governance Advisory Team at 1:00pm, Feb 2nd in the Jackson Chapel, for a question and answer session about a proposed procedure for bringing resolutions to the UUAA Congregation for a vote. Two recent examples of the joining together to speak out as one voice via resolution are our 2014 affirmation of marriage equality and our 2017 decision to become a Sanctuary Congregation. We currently have no official policies in place to guide congregants through this process.

You can download or view the draft Guidance document by following this link. Questions or comments are most welcome at the Q&A session, or by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., as we work toward Board adoption of procedures.

chaliceflameThis winter congregants and staff at UUAA have been in conversation about what matters to us in our Sunday services. Three documents are available that show some of this ongoing conversation.

- On Sunday, January 19, 2019, a "snapshot survey" gathered comments and suggestions about Sunday services from 362 participants (we currently have 632 adult members). Participants were very positive in their remarks, especially about music and staff. You can follow this link to see the summarized results, including a link to the full (anonymized) collected results.
