volunteer opportunities below,
and then, please click this button to:
- Sustainability Committee. The UULMF Steering Committee will not be able to do all the work necessary to identify, apply for, and secure all the necessary funding for special projects and ongoing operations. A team of skilled volunteers serving on this committee will provide consistent, high-level counsel as well as direct, hands-on support to assure UULMF has sufficient funds on hand at all times to carry out its Mission.
- Governance Committee. A committee combining the best thoughts and talents of UULMF Steering Committee members and volunteers, this group is charged with defining Steering Committee positions, monitoring the work of the Steering Committee to insure that it stays “on track,” and reviewing and supervising the work of the UULMF Coordinator.
- Congregational Relations Committee. An effective, lasting, and relevant UULMF requires that the relationship between itself, the Florida District office of the Unitarian Universalist Association, and all Florida UU congregations be clear, open, and productive. This committee, populated by volunteer and Steering Committee members, periodically reviews the work of UULMF and provides a report to the UULMF Chair and the Florida District Executive.
- Communication Committee. Getting the word out about who UULMF is, educating congregations and individuals as to their important part in this work, monitoring the status of issues identified by UULMF, as well as other matters of importance that the Steering Committee decides need attention, is the work of this committee. The Communication Committee supports project committees and activist partners. The work of this committee aggressively complements the work of the Congregational Relations Committee.
- Advocacy Committee(s). Typically, UULMF will be in active support of multiple issues at any given time. For 2009, the Steering Committee is pursuing Homelessness and Global Warming. Advocacy Committees will be established for each issue UULMF undertakes and will:
4. Solicit and motivate volunteers, activists, and/or other facilitating organizations as required.
5. Provide quarterly progress reports to the Steering Committee regarding UULMF’s activities and achievements related to their assigned issue.
Special Projects. From time to time, the Steering Committee will pursue special initiatives outside the scope of our two major issues, Homelessness and Climate Change. For example, UULMF supported organized opposition to the “Marriage Protection Amendment” to the Florida State Constitution that appeared on statewide ballots in the November 2008 general election. We aligned with Florida Red and Blue and other organizations to help fight that amendment. Volunteers at the UU congregation level are especially important in efforts like this which may arise whenever there is a need.
