C*UUYAN Conference Staff Deadline Today

If you are considering applying to be a part of the C*UUYAN (Continental UU Young Adult Network) Conference staff for Opus, ConCentric or GA, the deadline is today.  For those who miss the deadline but are still interested, there are some positions that may have extended deadlines, best bet is to call Petra Aldrich directly at 617-948-4629 to inquire.

Hi
there!

So you’re a Unitarian Universalist young adult
(18-35)?
 

Do you like spending time with
other UU young adults? 

Have you ever heard of the 3
annual conferences that the Continental UU Young Adult Network (C*UUYAN) puts on
each year?

They
are:

GA Young Adult
Caucus
– a subsection of the larger
General Assembly of the UUA

OPUS – the
spiritual retreat

ConCentric – the
business meeting and leadership development
conference.

(http://www.uua.org/ya-cm/conferences/index.html
)

A lot of people are needed to put
on these conferences, and that means we want
you to apply for staff positions
!

Do not worry if
you’ve never had the chance to attend before
, everyone is
encouraged to apply if they feel they can and would like to take on any of the
staff positions.

 

The deadline
for these applications is soon, October 15th. 

As a staff member you would be an
unpaid volunteer, but certain expenses are paid for and they vary by conference
and position (see job descriptions for info, there’s a link further on in this
document).

All applicants will be notified
whether they were hired or not by December 15th.

You can apply for up to 3
positions for all 3 of the conferences (3 positions for one conference, or one
each or even mix ‘em up), and please rank what your preferences are if you apply
for more than one.

This year GA is
being held in St. Louis MO from June 21-25

ConCentric: Spark the Spirit –
Ignite the Fire – Be the Force for Change

 

ConCentric is the
annual meeting of C*UUYAN, the Continental UU Young Adult (18-35) Network.
C*UUYAN is made up of districts comprised of grassroots groups, including local
congregational young adult groups and campus ministries.  ConCentric welcomes
District Representatives, Young Adult and Campus Ministry (YA-CM) leaders,
Regional Organizing Consultants, district organizers and experienced allies, and
anyone interested in becoming active in YA-CM leadership on the local, district
or continental level.  As ConCentric gathers creative, experienced and new
leaders from across the continent we engage in networking, participate in
workshops and trainings that offer tools to help build meaningful, sustainable
communities across the continent.

 

ConCentric 2006:
Spark the Spirit – Ignite the Fire – Be the Force for Change will offer leaders
the opportunity to nurture their spirit and learn skills to empower the
communities they work with to be the force for change.  Come to meet people,
network, participate in the CUUYAN leadership community–with fun in all–and
leave revitalized about the powerful work we do.
