Envoy Check List for July
Task 1: Update the UU-UNO on your Envoy Accomplishments
We want to hear what you have been doing in your congregation during the last year. Please contact Kamila and Holly by phone or email. We would love to highlight your successes in the envoy news and connect you to additional resources. If you haven't been very active, we still want to hear from you. We can help you re-energize or assist you with passing on the envoy leadership role to someone new.
Task 2: Set your UN Sunday Service Date
UN Day is October 24th. Honor this day at your congregations on October 28th with a UN Sunday service! We are happy to share with you the first version of our 2012 UN Sunday Resource Packet, a tool to help you honor UN Day in your congregation by holding a service or an event to reaffirm the connection between the UU principles and the work of the United Nations. We have chosen October 28th as this year's UN Sunday but we encourage you to choose any date in October that works for your congregation. This year's packet includes resources from our 2012 spring seminar for fighting discrimination based on race and immigrant status as well as recommended readings, hymns, and preparation suggestions.
Task 3: Save the date! November 3rd is our 50th Anniversary Extravaganza
2012 marks the UU-UNO's 50th anniversary. We are planning a grand celebration in New York City during the fall. We will also encouraging envoys to hold parities in their congregations. How will you celebrate the UU-UNO's 50th?
Task 4: Plan for UU-UNO Spring Seminar April 4-6th, 2013
Every April the UU-UNO hosts our intergenerational spring seminar in New York City. This year's seminar topic is Stop Violence & Discrimination based on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity. It is never too early to start fundraising for members of your congregation to attend. We are also looking for people to join our Spring Seminar Planning Committee.
