“In Good Standing”

Questions arose at the Annual Summit regarding the phrase “In Good Standing”. Over the years, the Unity cultural definition of this phrase has evolved. The UWM Membership Model Policy defines this phrase as:

For a Leader. To be in good standing, a Leader will be active (as defined in the Membership Model policy), have a UWM license or ordination that is not suspended or rescinded, properly submitting their yearly Credentialed Leaders Report (CLR), taking all required Continuing Education Units (CEU), living in accordance with the UWM Code of Ethics, Sexual Conduct Policy, Social Media Policy, and fulfilling all Member Leader agreements. 

For a Ministry. To be in good standing, ministries will be affiliated with UWM, properly submitting their Annual Ministry Report (AMR), living in accordance with the UWM Code of Ethics, Sexual Conduct Policy, Social Media Policy, and fulfilling all Member Ministry agreements.
