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.

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 membership dues or professional development.
If you are privileged to have access to good professional development resources, please consider supporting the Scholarship Fund with a donation.
The Association of UU Administrators is a professional association of over 300 Unitarian Universalist administrators from 39 states and 3 Canadian provinces. Through our annual Professional Days trainings, regional and cluster meetings, listserv, and Facebook group, we have been building ways to promote and strengthen Unitarian Universalism through effective administration since 1982. Check our AUUA News Page to read news of our activities.
