Cedar Lane has a proud history of leadership throughout our denomination and
the Denominational Affairs Committee is Cedar Lane's primary

area, throughout North America and, indeed, worldwide.
- We recruit delegates from Cedar Lane to the annual business meetings of
the Unitarian Universalist
Association ("UUA") at its General Assembly and the
District of the UUA ("JPD") as well as to the monthly meetings of the
Association of UU Congregations ("GWA"), and recommend our delegates'
certification, when it is required.
- We organize congregational polls, meetings and workshops relating to
general and special resolutions.
- In the past we have hosted candidates' debates preceding continental and
district elections and, with 2001 being an election year, expect to do that
- We regularly host meetings of the GWA and conventions of
- We provide some financial assistance to our delegates to General Assembly.
We always need help in these efforts and always welcome new members who care
deeply about our denomination.
