The Unitarian Universalist Association elected Peter Morales its eighth president on June 27, but that doesn't mean it's time for UUs to stop thinking about the way we choose our national leaders. The Board of Trustees is proposing some major changes to the way we elect the president and moderator, which the General Assembly will vote on next summer; see UU World's news coverage of the board's proposal and the revised bylaws delegates will consider in 2010. (The amendments were published in the 2009 General Assembly Business Agenda so delegates could begin discussing them.)
