Gini Courter elected interim UUA moderator.
The Unitarian Universalist Association Board of Trustees elected Gini Courter as the interim moderator of the Association in a special election Sunday morning. Diane Olson (who was elected by the General Assembly in 2001) resigned from the position last month. From the announcement sent earlier today:
Courter, of Traverse City, Michigan, is currently serving the Association as Secretary of the General Assembly Planning Committee. In June, she completed eight years as Trustee of the Heartland District and six years as Chair of the UUA Finance Committee. Courter will serve in the role of Interim Moderator until an election for a one-year term (the remainder of Diane Olson's unexpired term) as Moderator is held at the 2004 General Assembly in Long Beach, CA.
The other candidates for the position were Dr. Elizabeth McGregor, the Rev. Calvin Dame, Patsy Sherrill Madden (who had run against Diane Olson in the General Assembly election), and the Rev. Douglas Morgan Strong. More information will appear on the UUA Web site on Monday.
