UU Leadership Institute
A great new Leadership Learning Resource
The UU Leadership Institute is a new “practical seminary” for UU lay leaders! Whether you’re brand new to Unitarianism or to leadership, or have been a dedicated UU for decades, there’s a great selection of on-line courses now available for only $30 each. Choose from topics such as Healthy Membership, Healthy Leadership, the Importance of Small Congregations, UU History, Marketing, Branding and Communicating, or Finding your Best Stewardship Strategy. This would be a great thing for a small team or committee to do together!
CanU Proofreaders Needed
Have a keen eye? Like to read? Want a sneak preview of the upcoming issue of The CanU Newsletter? The Canadian Unitarian is seeking to enlarge our pool of volunteer proof-readers, to cast fresh eyes and help put critical polish on the twice yearly newsletter of the CUC. The work involves reading a .pdf proof of 24-28 pages, and marking any egregious errors, such as typos, dropped lines, mistakes in grammar, etc. Proof-readers are asked to return their corrections within a 3-day period, before the files go to press. If this is of interest to you, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
