2020 Professional Days!

Join Us for AUUA ProDays 2020 at First Unitarian Church of Providence, Rhode Island!

June 23-24, 2020

The ProDays Planning Team is VERY excited to announce that our keynote speaker will be a duo this year – the UUA co-moderates, Barb Greve and Elandria Williams! The workshops and training we are working on will connect with the GA 2020 theme of Rooted, Inspired, Ready to help ground, motivate, and prepare us to carry on as effective administrators. ProDays is one of the places we find information, strength, and support. We hope you can join us!

Our ProDays Planning Team is Carol Lewis, Nancy Forsstrom, Laurie Lantz, LeAundra Salazar-Slaughter, and Andrew Zallar

Registration is now open. More information available here.


AUUA Mark Pedersen Memorial Fund

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to one of our own.  Mark Pedersen, who unexpectedly, yet peacefully passed away September 16, 2018, served as the Sr. Administrator for the First Unitarian Society of Ithaca  (FUSIT) for twenty-two years and was a long-time member of the AUUA.   He will be missed by all who knew him.

Many of our members have expressed an interest in making memorial donations in memory of Mark.  If you would like to contribute to his memorial fund, please use the PayPal Donate Button below.  All donations will be designated to the Mark Pedersen Memorial Fund and used to provide support to AUUA Administrators who need assistance in order to attend AUUA Professional Days.

For more information, here’s a link to Mark’s obituary.  Click here.

AUUA Scholarship Fund

For a variety of reasons, not all UUA church administrators are blessed by their congregations with adequate professional development resources. The AUUA has a Scholarship Fund to support those administrators who need assistance with their membership dues.

If you are privileged to have access to good professional development resources, please consider supporting the Scholarship Fund with a donation.
