Pat Field (email@example.com) is the current chairperson of the Communication Committee.
The Communication Committee is charged with creating and sustaining the connection among members of our spiritual community and with the larger community of which we are a part.
Need to get a message out to the UUFN community about something? The Committee maintains several outlets to disseminate information, solicit input, and foster discussion. If you are new to all this, please take a moment to read about your options below. If you are an old hand, we now have a new form (The Publications Submission Form) that allows you to access all the venues at the same time. To access, please click here. If you are planning an event, you may also need or wish to place it on the UUFN Calendar. To go to the calendar, please click here.
Our monthly newsletter, Connections
This is our space to discuss committee achievements and plans, to hear from our Worship Committee on the month’s spiritual practice, to hear about upcoming events, and other important items! This e-newsletter is sent at the end of each month and is a vital communication tool for our members. We welcome all kinds of UUFN-related news. To submit an article or announcement, you simply need to submit the content using the Publication Submission Form by the 15th of the month for the following month’s newsletter. If you wish to communicate with the editor of Connections directly, please send email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Currently, Meg Everhart is editing this publication. She will step down after the December 2018 issue. We are currently looking for a replacement.
Weekly E-mail UUpdate
Each Friday, an e-newsletter is sent featuring information on the next service and any upcoming events. It’s a great way to get out late-breaking information, as well. These messages are short and sweet, recommended to be 110 words or less. Submit your content by Wednesday using the Publication Submission Form. If you wish to contact the UUpdate editor directly, please send email to email@example.com. Currently, Donna Shand is editing this publication. The Communication Committee would like to find a second volunteer to help her.
Notice in the Order of Service
The Order of Service is distributed to all people attending Sunday services. It includes information on the service, a spiritual practice, and blurbs on events in the upcoming week. Submit your announcement using the Publications Submission Form by Wednesday at 12:00 noon. The Order of Service notices are managed by our Office Administrator, Leidy Guerrero, who may contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or 302.368.2984.
Another way to get your message out is to have it appear on our website as a website news post. To do this, please use the Publication Submission Form.
Note: If you are using multiple outlets to publicize your event or activity, please note that you can do all of the above at the same time and that this is strongly preferred.
Facebook announcements are usually pulled from the monthly Connections Newsletter, the weekly UUpdate email, and Order of Service announcements. However, if you have something special you would like posted on the official UUFN Facebook Page please email email@example.com. Indicate in the email that you would like the item posted on Facebook. Currently, Anne Green handles most Facebook postings. The Communications Committee would like to find a second person to help her.
Note: There is also a Discussion Group on Facebook. The discussion group is not an official UUFN group and is privately managed.
Post a notice on the Bulletin Board
Leave your notice in the office in the Office Administrator’s mailbox with a note.
Groups always have the option of setting up a table at coffee hour on Sunday to distribute their information. It’s a great way to connect!
