On Thursday, February 18, Rev. Sue Phillips notified the Presidential Search Committee (PSC) and James Key, Moderator of the UUA, that she has formally withdrawn her candidacy for President of the Unitarian Universalist Association. We are disappointed, but we are grateful for her current work and hopeful to see her continue in leadership roles within the UUA.
The Secretary of the UUA Board, Rev. Rob Eller-Isaacs, has asked the Presidential Search Committee to nominate another candidate to run for the presidency. The PSC has accepted this charge. We received applications from some of the finest leaders in our association during our initial process, and we have full confidence that we will be able to provide the name of another strong candidate. The decision and the announcement of the nominee will be made as soon as possible, so that both candidates may continue introducing themselves to our association.
