Will examine purposes and principles of the association
The Unitarian Universalist Association’s Board of Trustees will appoint a commission to review Article II of the UUA bylaws, which describe the UUA’s purposes and principles. UUA bylaws mandate a review of Article II every 15 years, and allows the board to appoint a commission to do so at any time. At a general session June 24 at General Assembly 2017 in New Orleans, delegates voiced desire to talk more in-depth about UUA identity, which the commission will facilitate. The commission will be appointed by the board’s October meeting, said trustee Greg Boyd.
