Reading a UU World.org article on our association’s budget I saw mention of a report by UUA President Peter Morales to the board.

Monitoring Report—Global Ends
Peter Morales, UUA President.
The monitoring report is a document required to be submitted by the UUA President to the UUA Board per the new governance model our association is using describing the state of the association and its progress toward global end statements / goals established by the board.
What’s in this report? Its a great snapshot of where we are in terms of #s and describes primary initiatives underway and in the works. Well worth a quick read. It includes the following sections:
Assumptions—a discussion of the key ideas that underlie and unify our programmatic initiatives, including how these relate to our global ends.
Logical Model—a discussion of the model of how congregations thrive and grow and how one must lead change in our movement.
The current situation—a presentation of key indicators of the health and vitality of Unitarian Universalism today.
The UUA’s strategic vision—building upon the assumptions, logical model, and assessment of our situation, the administration’s strategy for achieving our ends.
Implementation status—Where we are in the process of implementing this vision.
My thoughts? Well, its an affirmation that I have my work cut out for me! Looks like my district is the most declining of them all — but we already knew that.
Good to get in at the ground level. Right? I’m fortunate that the people in my district are excited about our potential, interested in new collaborations, and open to change.
For the record, I love that this level of information is being shared publicly. We need this level of reporting to maintain our focus, the sense of urgency, and keeping the growth conversation going.
Your thoughts on the report?
