Report on UUA Board's January meeting.

The UUA's Web site now includes a report from Connie Haas Zuber, who observed the UUA Board of Trustees' January meeting on behalf of the District Presidents Association. Her report (pdf) is something dedicated UUA watchers will want to read, although the first page or so is specifically addressed to district presidents. Her report includes the first mention of several coming changes, some of which have not yet been formally announced.

Are you free to tell us more about the upcoming changes to UUWorld? I'm sorry that it is being cut back to four issues, but I am excited about the online weekly. With the growth of UU bloggerdom and vibrant online UU communities like FUUSE and LiveJournal, it seems like a great opportunity to hear from more UUs and more kinds of UUs. Is this part of the idea?

Matthew, as you can imagine, I'm deeply involved in imagining what we might do with and how, given the magazine's resources, we can do it. But yes, it will undoubtedly open up new opportunities for writers — and I hope to see engage and amplify the UU conversations already taking place on the Web.

Intriguingly, the United Church of Christ is in the midst of doing exactly the same thing, as they announced in their denominational newspaper in December.

I'll be dismayed if this means that UU World is going to be published less frequently and/or supported less generously. Especially if extra resources are going to be given to the Washington Office. IMHO, HQ should be putting a lot more effort into reporting to the congregations on issues of concern, not speaking for them. UU World is one of the few outlets where they actually do this.
