The UTO Board
The UTO Board is composed of a Province Representative from each of the nine provinces of the Episcopal Church and three continuing members serving at large, who represent the provincial regions of the Anglican Communion. It is staffed by the UTO Coordinator, who works in The Episcopal Church Center in New York.
Within their provinces, UTO Board members establish and maintain communication with:
- Diocesan UTO Coordinators and Bishops within their province
- Diocesan ECW Boards
- Episcopal Church Center Provincial Liaison
- Provincial publications
UTO Board members attend three UTO Board meetings per year and other provincial/synod meetings and conferences. These are held in different dioceses of The Episcopal Church. They develop new UTO materials and programs, such as Face To Face, in order to promote, interpret, and support the ministry of the United Thank Offering. Each UTO Board member researches applications and communicates with the UTO grant applicants within their province in preparation for the yearly granting session held each April.
UTO Board members travel within their Province, visiting churches, women’s groups, vestries, seminaries, diocesan meetings, etc., to speak on the work of the UTO. We train, educate, and support Diocesan UTO Coordinators, including providing the annual Face To Face workshop. We visit churches, dioceses, seminaries, etc. as requested to promote UTO.
