UUWorld: Three Districts Vote to Become MidAmerica Region
Shift toward regionalization aims to create greater connections among congregations.
By Donald E. Skinner
The first of the Unitarian Universalist Association’s 19 districts are just weeks away from becoming a region.
On April 27, delegates at the Central Midwest District annual meeting voted to give up their district structure and become the MidAmerica Region in company with the Prairie Star and Heartland districts.
Delegates in the Prairie Star and Heartland districts had voted earlier in April in favor of regionalization. At all three meetings, the votes were overwhelmingly in favor.
