United Church of Christ Musicians Association
Inspiring, educating and nurturing those who minister through music and the arts 
The United Church of Christ Musicians Association, Inc. (UCCMA) is a non-profit, national organization with a membership made up of musicians, clergy and interested laity. We are a grassroots, member-supported association run entirely by volunteers.

UCCMA was founded in 1993 by a small group of musicians in Connecticut who felt a need for professional support from colleagues in our denomination. We incorporated in 1994 and held our first national conference in 1998.

As we have grown both in membership and mission, our focus has broadened to include individuals with many different roles, both formal and informal, in their churches' music and worship life. People from other denominations have always been welcome.

We offer professional development and support, education programs, networking, resources, publications and conferences.
To those who join UCCMA, we provide:
* UCC Musicians News, an electronic newsletter published six times a year
* Worship, Music and Ministry, a  professional journal published  three times a year
* Job placement listing service
* Biennial national conference offering  an array of workshops and  worship services
* Online address directory
* Supportive environment for learning  skills and connecting with colleagues
One Year Membership - $50.00
Institutional Membership - $75.00
Two Year Membership - $90.00

Website Survey
The Office of Philanthropy, Identity, Technology, and Communication (OPTIC) is leading an effort to redevelop ucc.org.   The process will include surveys such as this one and convenings of focus groups and subject matter experts in order to gather input from throughout the church. OPTIC is committed to making the redevelopment process an inclusive one and as responsive as possible to the needs of everyone who relies on ucc.org for information.
Right now we ask that you weigh in as we work our way through web development firm (vendor) selection, so that we can begin this process.  Your input will make sure that our choice is a good fit for all involved.
Please answer these six brief questions by September 20, 2019  about your experience with ucc.org. The survey should take 5 minutes or less.
Thank you in advance for your responses.
