The UUA is currently accepting proposals for programming for GA 2015. For details and a link to the proposal form visit the UUA website.
Does your committee or congregation have a great program you'd like to share with others in the OMD and St Lawerence districts? This year we have several workshop slots available at the Ohio-Meadville & St. Lawrence Joint District Assembly in the spring. Congregations, committees, organizations, and individuals wishing to present a 1 hour, 15 minute workshop at one District Assembly this year are welcome to do so. DA will be March 27-28, 2015 in Niagara Falls, NY.
Thie 2015 theme is Strong Roots, Broad Wings. Workshops that highlight or focus on ways that congregations can or have successfully worked together on projects are highly encouraged. Cluster work is another area we are interested in highlighting. Congregations with innovative programs who would like to share those programs and their success with others are also welcomed.
The deadline to apply a workshop slot is November 10. District Assembly workshops will be selected by December 15th. Fill out the online form to apply.
