UUPA Membership

Membership in UUPA is open to all, regardless of relationship preference or status. UUPA welcomes poly folks, non-poly allies, and anyone who wants to learn more about polyamory. Membership does not indicate anything about your own relationship choices.

Confidential membership may be requested. For more information about confidentiality, write to the UUPA Secretary before submitting a membership form.

Annual membership meetings are held each year. Meetings may be scheduled during the General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association, or they may be held via conference call at different times. UUPA's first official membership meeting was held on June 23, 2001, at the General Assembly in Cleveland, Ohio. At that meeting, twenty or so charter members elected a board of trustees and ratified our bylaws. Our next membership meeting is on Feb. 9, 2020.

UUPA is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization incorporated in Washington State. Membership dues and financial contributions to UUPA are tax-deductible in the US.
