General Assembly 2020 – Providence | Volunteers Needed
Welcome Winter!
As I sit looking out the window of my office the snow is gently falling and the cat is curled up all warm and snuggly.  The songs of my youth are playing in the background and my mind turns to all of the wonderful support CUUPS has had this year from many of our members, UU ministers, and congregations supporting chapters.

In this time of reflection, we the board of CUUPS look at what we can bring to all of you and the opportunities to include our members, chapters and supporters. The board is taking the month off to discern and come back in January refreshed and ready to create newly.
For us this organization serves all of you and is you. It takes all of us to continue theeducational efforts and vision of CUUPS in the UUA.
In this season of wonder and new possibilities, what would you like to see us bring forward? Curriculums? Educational Materials? A gathering? We wonder. Let us know!
Many Blessings!
