A Message from Denise Rimes, President, Southeast District of the UUA:
Dear Congregational Leaders,
I am in touch to urge you and other leaders in your congregations to attend and participate in one of the two upcoming webinars hosted by UUA staff members that are listed below. These webinars will provide a brief overview of regionalization efforts across the Unitarian Universalist Association and the Southern Region, of which the Southeast District and your congregation is a part.
Regionalization is an effort to be better stewards of time, money and resources. It is well underway. Our covenant of support and care calls congregations to be in deep relationship with one another. This support and care includes financial support for our Association of congregations. There has been deep dialogue about how to fund needed programs and staffing for those programs in a more covenantal way. As part of regionalization efforts, The Southern Region (Mid-South District, Florida District, Southeastern District and Southwest UUC) is participating in a pilot program to change how the annual ask for our Unitarian Universalist Association and district funding occurs. This topic is the spotlight theme of the webinars I urge you to attend, as this program will develop over the next two fiscal years. Your voices are needed, your concerns should be shared and your participation will help to develop the program.
Feel free to contact me or the UUA Staff Members I've listed below for additional conversation about the new funding approach or to further discuss regionalization. It is important that we have access to each other during changing times; we'll find a way to be with you to share what's happening, answer your questions and address your concerns. Let us know how things look from your perspective!
Thank you for being among the leaders of our faith to move it forward.
Southeast District, President
