UUA General Assembly
BY JUNE 8th: you must fill out the Annual Meeting Form to let us know what you plan and don't plan to attend. If you are NOT attending GA you must fill this out. If you ARE going to GA, fill this out. This has been an action item already, thank you to those who have already filled this out. It has been updated as of May 9th so if you filled it out prior, please go back and answer the last two questions.
I will email anyone who says they plan to attend GA with our events and an optional volunteer form (this will list positions, responsibilities, and time slots to sign up for). I will reconfirm the week of the 15th and I can host a Volunteer Responsibilities conference call if you would like to talk it all out.
We can't wait to see you! Be sure to read our UUA General Assembly blog to see all of our events.
Program Area Updates
Our academic year interns have now graduated and our summer interns are getting oriented. Here are some brief introductions from the interns who have already started.
Hi, I’m Hannah, I’ll be interning in May and June at the UU UNO office. I’m from Long Island and my family and I attend UU Central Nassau. I am currently studying History, International Relations, and French at American University. I’m looking forward to my summer in NYC at the office. So far I’ve gotten to attend the Thirteenth UN Indigenous Peoples Forum (blog to be published this week). I can’t wait to learn more about the office and the United Nations! I can be contacted at email@example.com with "attn Hannah" in the subject line.
Greetings UUs near and far!
My name is Nicolaas Smith. I’m currently enjoying a fantastic summer internship placement at the UU-UNO. My current projects focus on the Every Child is Our Child program. I am aiming to establish a long-term penpal program between North American youth and ECOC students. Additionally, I am creating modified OWL and Goldmine programming to be implemented by the UU College of Social Justice internship in Ghana. I anticipate engaging in this partnership with the Queen Mothers Association later this summer to facilitate these projects!
My UU roots dig back to the Ottawa First congregation. I attend Queen’s University and major in political studies, complimenting a Global development minor. I am greatly excited to be so involved with UU faith-based social justice over the next few months and can’t wait to see these initiatives unfold in the near future. If you have any interest in learning more or aiding these initiatives, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line: "attn: Nic".
