Board of Directors Information

Request for UUJEC Board Nominations

Are you concerned about economic justice? Unitarian Universalists for a Just Economic Community (UUJEC) works with the frontline communities most challenged by economic injustice and the climate crisis. We stay in solidarity with the poor and with other oppressed groups, and we affirm Unitarian Universalist principles as we work for empowerment. 

The Nominating Committee of UUJEC is looking for people to serve on the UUJEC Board of Directors. We hope you will consider this opportunity yourself or nominate someone you think would be a valuable addition. Our Board meets monthly by via Zoom that’s usually an hour. In addition, there is usually a planning retreat every summer and UUJEC’s annual meeting has been done virtually in mid-July since COVID-19. In years when we hold a national conference, a meeting may be held there as well. 

We are often able to cover some expenses if travel is necessary. Ours is a “working board”—responsibilities between meetings include putting out mailings, preparing for General Assembly programs and our twice monthly Webinar series, writing economic-justice curricula for congregational use, writing grant proposals, staffing booths at GA and other UU meetings, etc. 

Serving on our board is a great way to connect with other UUs from across the continent who are actively working on social-justice issues and to keep our Association attentive to current issues and proactive in working for systemic change toward economic justice. The term is for 3 years. We welcome all applicants, especially those from frontline communities most challenged by economic injustice and climate crisis and who can help us reach, aid, lobby, and legislate for their priorities. 

If you are motivated to join us, please send a letter of interest and details of your work for justice to uujec@uujec.org. Alternatively, feel free to forward this to someone you think might be interested. Please respond by Thanksgiving. A ballot will be sent to our active members by November 30. The results of the election will be announced by December 15 and terms begin on January 1. Thanks for your ongoing support for UUJEC. Cordially yours, 

UUJEC Nominating Committee
