We’ve got a lot of surveys out there circulating, so we wanted to remind you of the links and the deadlines.
NEW! UTO Materials in Spanish
As we head toward General Convention, we wanted to check in about the need for Spanish language materials. In 2015, we received the feedback that it was cost prohibitive to ship materials to dioceses outside the United States, so we began to offer materials in Spanish that could be downloaded and printed locally. Each General Convention is an opportunity for us to review our materials and see how we can better meet the needs of our members. Given that, we’ve created a survey to find out what materials you’d like to have in Spanish and what format you would like them in. This survey will be open through July 15, so please share it with anyone who might need or use UTO materials in Spanish. At the end of July, we’ll process the results of the survey and begin translating and producing materials in Spanish. Click here and let us know how we can best support you!
Pre-Convention Signup Form Due June 15
For those attending General Convention, there’s a form that we ask you to fill out (even if you are coming as a deputy or delegate) so we know whom to expect and to help us populate our new database. If you are only walking in the Ingathering, please email Heather directly. Please fill this out by June 15. We’ll then send a follow-up packet to everyone who has registered. When you fill out the form, you’ll automatically be entered into a raffle for a prize – it’s our way to thank you for taking the time to help us update our records.
