The UUJEC Board is soliciting nominations to be on our board for a three year, renewable term beginning in January, 2019.

Are you interested? Do you know someone who would be a good fit?

UUJEC Board Members at our 2018 Retreat, Kansas City, Missouri

 

We meet every month for a conference call, currently on the second Mondays at 6:00 pm EST, for about an hour; and meet for a couple days retreat before or following GA for strategic planning for the upcoming year. Depending on which committee/committees you serve on, there could be a few more hours a month. We’ve not made plans yet for our retreat in June 2019’s General Assembly in Spokane.

The board is made up of UUs from a wide geographical distribution and with dedication to economic justice. We plan programs for GA and hold topical conferences—we are planning a conference in Washington DC for next spring. We’ll work in coalition with UUSJ, a national action network, lobbying Congress. After this fall’s election, we’ll have a better idea of what we can and should do in Washington, DC.

In the past, we have developed curricula for Congregational Study Action Issues on Economic Inequality and the Corruption of Our Democracy. We also developed a curriculum on complexities of healthcare in the US.

We are a “working board” so board members serve on committees and action task forces, write curriculum, contribute to our e-newsletter and our web page, www.uujec.com, staff our booth at GA, and help with fund raising.
Learn more here about our responsibilities and expectations. For a printable version of this email, view our PDF here.

Interested or have questions? Please contact us via email at election@uujec.com We will present a slate of candidates for our members to vote on, so please let us know by November 1st, 2018 if you are interested.
