URANTIA 2004—On July 28 – August 1, this year’s IUA conference, The Mind Arena of Choice, drew more than 250 readers of The Urantia Book from around the world to Dominican University in the beautiful Chicago suburb of River Forest. Hosted by Greater Lake Michigan Urantia Association, attendees were treated to insightful plenary speeches from twelve speakers, the choice of more than 50 workshops, lectures and discussion groups, talented musical entertainment, and lots of friendship cultivation and renewal.

Pre-conference business meetings of the various IUA committees proved very fruitful and offered organizational leaders the opportunity to enrich valuable personal relationships, make important decisions, and discuss ongoing and exciting new service strategies.

More youth and young adult readers showed up than ever before and they added a special dimension to the event. Around 35 of these motivated seekers spent time both in sessions and reversion, learning more about the teachings and getting to know each other and the older generations in attendance.

New Local Association—On Sunday, February 22, 2004 the 26th local association joined the family of the Urantia Association of the United States. Urantia Brotherhood Association of Arizona was licensed in Phoenix, Arizona with twenty-three members. Since that time, two more members have been added and the group has embarked on a service project of library placement for the entire state.

Brazilian Expansion—Earlier this year the Associação Urantia do Brazil outgrew its local status and became a national association. With a current membership of 90 readers, Brazil is one of the most dynamic chapters of IUA.
