Article II Study Commission – UUA Principles and Purposes – Article II Process Update

You can give input now to the future UUA Purposes, Principles and Sources.

There is a Study Commission that is reviewing and proposing revisions to our current UUA Principles and Sources (“Article II”). Here is a link to a full draft of Article II (PDF, 3 Pages). Your feedback is requested. The Study Commission’s outreach team will be hosting Zoom feedback sessions in the first half of November, along with gathering feedback through a forthcoming online form for individual comments.


The Study Commission will present its final draft to the Board in January for inclusion on the agenda for General Assembly 2023. It will then be the subject of mini-Assemblies before the initial vote at GA 2023. If it passes that delegate vote by a majority, it will require a 2/3 majority vote at GA 2024 to become the new Article II of the Bylaws.


This draft makes significant changes to the UUA Principles and Sources (Article II).


Here is the schedule of feedback sessions and link to register

Saturday, 11/05 at 3 p.m. Eastern

We hope you will take time to review this draft and, if possible, attend one of the feedback sessions on Zoom now, while your input can still be received. In February, we will discuss the proposed Principles and Sources at our congregation.
