Voting Delegates at General Assembly 2017

As a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), First Parish is eligible to send up to five voting delegates to General Assembly (GA) on June 21-25 in New Orleans.  This year, Marianne DiBlasi, Ben Soule, Deb Weiner-Soule, and Elizabeth Walsh will be attending and have been approved by the board to act as voting delegate representatives. What does this mean?  It means these delegates will be voting on business agenda items — including bylaw amendments, a statement of conscience, and the UUA presidential election. It means that these delegates are representing you — the members of First Parish.

In preparation for voting, the UUA Board of Trustees is hosting a 75-minute webinar which will provide information about the business items.  You are invited to attend one of these webinars to learn about the issues that are coming up for vote.  Let your delegates know your thoughts on these issues so we can better represent First Parish at GA.

Please note that this 75-minute webinar is scheduled for 5 separate dates and times. Each webinar covers the same material so you only need to attend one of them.

Thank you in advance for being part of UU democracy in action!
