Problem Solving and Support Teams

For routine “how do I get this done?” issues like room reservations and social hall tables, etc, please try checking the table below for guidance.

If you need to talk to the staff person who oversees a particular area, view the list of ministers and staff. Rev. Cassandra Hartley oversees operations policies and procedures.

If you have a question or suggestion involving UUAA governing policies, you should speak with a Board of Trustees member.

You might find that you have a more complex problem, like a relationship issue or an issue with UUAA processes and procedures. There are three lay teams that focus on creating a healthy and supportive environment at UUAA:

Living Our Values (LOV) Team aids with relationship issues within groups or the congregation.

Shared Ministries Team (SMT) helps with issues that involve UUAA processes and procedures.

Music Ambassadors (MA) Team can answer questions and receive feedback that is specific to our large and varied music programs.
