Understand Upcoming Changes to our Bylaws

This year’s UUA General Assembly will include a special vote by delegates on new wording for our principles and purposes as stated in our UUA by-laws, known as “Article II.” This vote finalizes a multi-year process that includes considerable work by the Article II Study Commission and the UUA Board of Trustees. Article II has not been updated since the 1980s. Congregations are encouraged to be in rigorous conversation about Article II. It is important that we all engage with one another, ask questions, share thoughts and concerns, and prepare for the final vote to be held at the 2024 General Assembly. There will be an online presentation on these changes on March 7, 2024 at 7pm. Register here.

If you are considering being a delegate at GA in June, it will be especially important to hear from our congregants what they think about the proposed changes. Information about the Article II proposal can be found on the UUA website.

On March 10, 2024,join the By-Laws Committee to learn about proposed By-Laws amendments to be voted on at the 2024 Annual Meeting. These amendments relate to term limits for officers not already subject to term limits as well as updating the use of pronouns.

A Zoom link will be sent out on the Business List a few days before.
