The MidAmerica Region of the Unitarian Universalist Association includes nearly 200 UU congregations in parts or all of these states: Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Kentucky, Ohio, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas, and Nebraska.
We are seeking to covenant with each other to find new ways of partnering and standing together on the side of love for the flourishing of our world, our communities, our congregations and our members.
Our MidAmerica regional staff members, Nancy Combs-Morgan, email@example.com, and Dori Davenport Thexton firstname.lastname@example.org, continue to work with congregations on developing sustainable youth ministry experiences, as well as continuing education training, such as the “New Youth Advisor Webinars (Sept. 9th and 18th). Nancy Combs-Morgan serves as advocate for the three area youth councils; both Nancy and Dori organize the training for the Con-Coordinators for the Central Midwest Area. Nancy works directly with the Con-Coordinators, and is the point person for congregational leaders who questions about youth conferences in the MA region.
I'm very pleased to share the wonderful news that UUA President Peter Morales has selected Kathy Burek to receive the 2014 President's Award for Volunteer Service to the UUA at GA in Providence!
This award is presented to the person designated by the President as having given extraordinary and vital service to the UUA as a volunteer.
Please join me in congratulating Kathy for this well-deserved recognition of her exceptional service at every level of Unitarian Universalism, from the choir to the Association!
Best regards, Rev. Bill Sasso
