UU Trivia Question of the Day #32

The Committee on Committees is one of the most unfortunately (or perhaps humorously) named segments of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations.  But its actual work is quite straightforward and necessary.  So here’s today’s simple question:

What does the Committee on Committees do?

  1. They nominate people to be appointed by the Board on to UUA committees. This is only for non-elected committees, because the Nominating Committee (NomCom) nominates at-large positions for the Board and for General Assembly Planning Committee.

  2. You’re right, College Student, but not comprehensive in your description of the Nominating Committee.

    In Addition to the GA Planning Committee and Board At Large positions, the NomCom also nominates for election by the General Assembly, some or all of the positions on:

    The Board of Review
    The Nominating Committee
    The Commission on Social Witness
    The Commission on Appraisal

  3. Patrick McLaughlin

    I’ve never been able to read that name without immediately hearing Garrison Keillor talking about the Federation of Associations.

    About the only thing I can say that gives me rest with the CoC is that no one (yet!) has tried to shoehorn them into some strained, cuute acronym.

  4. Because it’s already amusing as it is? Like the First Unitarian Church of Kingston would be? 🙂
