Economic recession brings downsized UUA.

In case you're not keeping up with UU World's weekly coverage of Unitarian Universalist news (RSS; email newsletter), I wanted you to be aware of the magazine's story about the UUA's budget cuts for the fiscal year beginning in July. Where the denomination had a total budget of $26.7 million in 2009, the UUA has cut its 2010 budget to $22.7 million through the elimination of the equivalent of 13 full-time staff positions, the reorganization of the Congregational Services department, cuts in travel and events, curtailing the printing and mailing of several periodicals (InterConnections, The Religious Leader, the monthly Congregational Bulletin, and the annual Directory), and reduced staffing at the General Assembly, among many other cuts.

Here is the article in the final printed edition of InterConnections that describes the newsletter's transition to an entirely digital publication.

No one is immune to this current downturn. I know UUSC is also trying to work around a smaller budget without hurting programming. My thoughts go out to all those who lost jobs.
