The Board of the Unitarian Universalist Association is undergoing a major culture shift right now, essentially a shift toward what is known as “policy governance.” Essentially, this means that the Board will no longer be involved in the micromanaging of UUA policies and procedures. Instead, the function of the Board will be to provide vision for the denomination and set overall policies, while delegating the details of the actual implementation of many of those policies to UUA staffmembers. This will be one of the most significant reorganizations of the Board (and therefore the UUA) in a long time.
One major step in this move toward policy governance is creating a “global ends policy,” basically a sort of overarching mission statement. At the moment, the UUA Board’s new global ends policy has a set of three core values and an attendant ends statement. Can you name these values and list the draft statement?
