About the “UP!” Program
|During the eighteen-month duration of the program, participating congregations will be offered:
UP! Teams from each congregation will be the direct interface between the program and the individual congregations. Each participating congregation’s board of trustees will designate three or more folks from the congregation to be the congregation’s “UP! Team.” Thus the UP! Teams will be the people with whom the program will work directly. The UP! Teams will then communicate the information and resources they are receiving to their boards and congregations.
There is no direct cost to congregations to participate in the UP! Program, but attendance at conferences and special events will mean some costs for that participation. Costs of conference calls and some of the overhead and administrative costs of the program are underwritten by funds generated by contributions of UU congregations in the district on Association Sunday in 2007.
