The staff of Urantia Foundation and members of the Greater Lake Michigan Urantia Association (GLMUA) were delighted to host association leaders from around the United States who gathered for the Annual Business Meeting of the United States Urantia Association (USUA) in Chicago June 1, 2002.

We began welcoming visitors early Friday at the Foundation offices. The weekend started with a lively reception on the 3rd floor of Urantia Foundation headquarters on Friday evening. Old and new friends greeted one another and engaged in animated discussions of activities in which they are involved within the United States and abroad. The common bond of service to our fellows and a shared interest in furthering the teachings of The Urantia Book united this diverse group.

We send special thanks to USUA Treasurer Mike Wood and GLMUA member Bill Martin who did so much advance preparation of food and other arrangements for the weekend. Thanks also to Steve and Tonia Baney who opened their home for the reception, prepared food, and created a wonderful atmosphere that made this a memorable experience for all.

USUA Business Meeting

Twenty-seven national officers, committee chairs, and local officers representing twelve local associations were in attendance for the meeting on Saturday, along with ten members who attended as observers. We heard from several active committees who inspired us to greater commitments to these areas of service, including Conference, Education, Membership, and Publications.

From the shelves of these libraries the message of The Urantia Book will be made available to countless numbers of readers who browse the libraries searching for truth. Our thanks to the staff and volunteers who helped with this event.
