(PSD Annual Conference Main Page)

The PSD Annual Conference is a weekend of workshops, worship, and fellowship in April of each year, and its location varies. At the Annual Meeting that takes place during the Annual Conference officers and directors are elected, the budget is approved, resolutions considered, awards granted, and reports presented.

PSD 2006 Annual Conference : “UU Con: Giving Life the Shape of Justice” April 28-30, 2006 Sheraton Inn in downtown Iowa City, Iowa

Hosted by UU Society of Iowa City

The 2006 Conference includes:

The regular conference for adults. A Social Action Conference for youth (ages 12-18 or grades 7-12). “Scenes of Justice,” a program for children in grades K-6. Child care for children ages 3-5. Greeting from Iowa City

We did not blow away in the tornado last Thursday (April 13), but Iowa City did sustain significant damage. The hotel is undamaged except for the parking ramp and the conference will go on as planned. The windows in the parking ramp elevator blew out and they are currently working on getting them replaced. The only inconvenience might be using the stairs instead of the elevator but we are hopeful it will be taken care of.

Our church building was very fortunate in receiving only minor damage -- two broken windows. Further up Iowa Avenue, the street our church is on, there was substantial damage to a residential neighborhood. The entire community has been pitching in cleaning up the mess and we are hopeful the streets will be open soon. The route we gave you in the confirmation letter is open and fine for traffic.

We look forward to seeing you at the conference.
