On May 18th, four delegates from our congregation participated in the AGM of the Canadian Unitarian Council without leaving the comfort of our own sanctuary. We watched the proceedings on the pull-down screen in the chancel (thanks for tech support, Janni) and cast our votes via Google Drive in real time. Joy Silver, Sunny Wachowski, Rebecca Lindley, and Marcia Stephenson represented NSUC at the virtual meeting. Here's a brief recap:
2018 CUC National Conference and Annual General Meeting
Over the weekend of May 18-21, 2018, more than 280 Canadian Unitarian adults, and 75 youth and youth advisors gathered in Hamilton ON for the CUC’s National Conference. Together, they explored the conference theme of “Invitation to Love and Justice” through workshops, networking and worship. They also elected a new Board of Trustees, collected over $7,000 for three charities, presented grants and awards, and enjoyed social events presented by members of the First Unitarian Church of Hamilton.
The Annual General Meeting, for the second year, had full online participation and voting capability. There were over 100 delegates, both onsite in Hamilton and online via Zoom web meeting platform. Twelve congregations participated online.
A new member congregation was welcomed into the Canadian Unitarian Universalist community. The Nelson Unitarian Spiritual Centre in British Columbia was affirmed as a full member congregation at the Annual General Meeting.
