UUA trustees with blogs comment on board meeting.

At least two trustees on the board of the Unitarian Universalist Association are blogging about the quarterly board meeting held this past weekend in Boston. (How transparent!) At UUA View from Berkeley, Linda Laskowski, the new trustee from the Pacific Central District, offers general comments about the experience of being a new trustee, but promises an upcoming post on changes in the rules governing independent affiliates [link added 10.25.07].

Thanks for the mention. It is primarily geared toward the folks here in the PSWD. And yes, the fires have been distracting from the time we flew back in from Boston on Sunday night and could see them out our windows on both sides of the plane. I hope to be back to finish up the saturday and Sunday items for the blog. Tom Loughrey

Two other trustees also have public blogs, but have not written about the board meeting: Rosemary Bray McNatt (the new trustee from the Metro New York District) and Anna Olsen (the new trustee from the Thomas Jefferson District).
