2020 Professional Days!

2020 Professional Days: We’re Going Virtual!

In light of the UUA’s General Assembly Update, the AUUA Board has decided to make this year’s ProDays a 100% virtual event. It will still be held on June 23-24, but the exact schedule will be different from our traditional in-person schedule since none of us wants to be on an 8-hour Zoom meeting. Stay tuned for details.

The AUUA Board has made the decision to offer Virtual Professional Days free to all active AUUA members (if you need to renew, you can do so here: https://www.auua.org/members/). Registration will be limited to the first 300 registrants, and those who were already registered for ProDays will automatically be registered.

If you had already registered for ProDays and have paid the registration fee, the AUUA Treasurer will be refunding those payments. If you have questions about your refund, please contact Treasurer@AUUA.org.

If you are in a position to make a good will offering to the Pedersen Scholarship fund, you can do so here:  https://www.auua.org/donate/.  The Pedersen Scholarship fund will help support AUUA members who need assistance in order to attend AUUA Professional Days (funds will be used for future ProDays scholarships since none will be needed this year.)

We hope you will join us!

Be well,
Your AUUA Board: Robie Evans, Carol Marks, MaryBeth Hannan, Laurie Lantz, Rina Jurceka, Carol Lewis, Charlie Lewis, Le Aúndra Salazar-Slaughter

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.
