UUHA Annual Meeting: Agenda, Zoom Login Info & Election Slate

This Saturday the UU Humanist Association will hold its Annual Meeting. This is one of our organization’s most important events, as it gives the UUHA Board of Directors a chance to meet directly with its membership and it gives members a chance to vote on the proposed UUHA board slate.

This year will be one of our most unique Annual Meetings as well. Due to the public health concerns surrounding COVID-19, the 2020 Annual Meeting will be hosted via the Zoom Conferencing Application. Though conducted remotely, our hope is this allows far more of our members the chance to meet with us! If you are a member of the UUHA, we really hope to see you. And if you are not a member, but you are interested in the UUHA, we hope you’ll attend the meeting as well.

Instructions on how to attend the Annual Meeting via Zoom are below, as well as details on our agenda for the Meeting. Read more about UUHA Annual Meeting: Agenda, Zoom Login Info & Election Slate »

Find the UUHA at the "All Virtual" General Assembly

Dear UUHA Members,

The UUA’s first-ever all-virtual General Assembly is happening this week! Ordinarily, the UU Humanist Association looks forward to its presence in the Exhibition Hall to meet and to expand our membership. But just because we can’t meet in person this year doesn’t mean those attending GA online won’t see us! Here’s where you can find the UUHA at GA, from the comfort of your computer:

A “Virtual" Exhibit Booth

The UUHA will participate in the GA Virtual Exhibition booth. If you registered for GA, you should have received information on how to attend. Just log into the GA Participant Portal, and click on the “Exhibit Hall” channel on the left menu bar. Scroll down just a little bit and you’ll find us!

Learning Stage Presentation

Members of the UU Humanist Association Board will also give a webinar as part of GA’s “Learning Stage” video series. If you’re interested in hearing from the UU Humanist Association Leadership, our presentation will be held on the Zoom Video Conferencing App.

Save the Date: UUHA Annual Meeting

Dear UUHA Members,

 

Each year the Unitarian Universalist Humanist Association Board hosts the UUHA Annual Meeting. This is a vital opportunity for members to meet directly with UUHA leadership. Items on the Annual meeting agenda include, but are not limited to, elections for open UUHA Board positions, announcement of our UUHA Person of the Year, and a chance to brief members on programming and general updates.

Usually this meeting is held concurrently with the UUA's own annual meeting, General Assembly, held each June. As you might have heard, GA is no longer going to take place in Providence this year due to concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic, and will instead be an all-virtual event. With no physical space to hold our meeting, UUHA has decided to do follow suit. Read more about Save the Date: UUHA Annual Meeting »

Get to Know Some of Our UUHA Ambassadors

Last year we launched the UUHA Ambassador program. The purpose of the program is to strengthen the connection between the UUHA board and congregations. We hope to identify at least one person in each congregation to be an Ambassador. The role of the Ambassadors is to inform their congregations about UUHA and to increase membership in UUHA and thereby help strengthen humanism in Unitarian Universalism. Below you will find information about some of these Ambassadors

If you would like to apply to be an Ambassador, you can learn more about the program and apply online.

Submissions Sought: Humanist Elevator Speeches

We humanists love to talk and explain (and then sum up, before adding footnotes!) …but brevity can sometimes be better. The Journal of Religious Humanism challenges you to be creatively brief. If you were asked, upon entering an elevator: “Hey, what is Humanism, anyway?” And you had to reply before exiting, what would you say?

In one floor? A dozen words or fewer? Example: “Wonder, imagination, fulfillment, creativity, meaning: available to everyone – religious or not.” Marilyn Westfall

In four floors? No more than 50 words? Example: “Humanism tells me human life is … worthy of respect and care. Environmentalism tells me: to be human is to be part of an interdependent circle of all life. Environmental Humanism compels me to … reduce human practices that threaten the survival of life on earth.” Carol Hepokoski

In twelve floors? 100 words, tops? Read more about Submissions Sought: Humanist Elevator Speeches »
