UUA Monthly Board Meetings

One way the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Board of Trustees serves the more than 148,000 members and over 1,000 member congregations of the UUA is through open communication and transparency in its own work.

To further encourage this open dialogue, the Board hosts monthly Open Houses. All are invited to attend and participate. Bring your comments, questions, and suggestions, and chat about the Board’s work and the Unitarian Universalist (UU) issues that matter most to you. Beginning at 7 p.m. EST, the Open Houses are generally the second Tuesday of each month (except on the third Tuesday in November 2022). 

Find the link to pre-register (required) for upcoming meetings dates on the UUA website.
