As part of our Public Policy Series, UNA is committed to providing information and tools for informed decision making. This election year, we are asked to vote on retaining or not retaining judges in the counties we live in. The Judicial Performance Evaluation Commission (JPEC) collects information on each judge's performance so voters can make informed decisions at the polls. Don't head to the polls uninformed - click here to learn about judges in your area.

UNA gets many requests from nonprofits looking for board members and people who want to serve on a  nonprofit board.

To help you connect,
we have launched a LinkedIn group:

There are over 200 members in this group who are looking for the opportunity of serving on a nonprofit board. Nonprofits- please post your nonprofit board openings or contact those who are already part of the group if you are interested in interviewing them for a board position in your organization.

Feel free to share this group with your colleagues!
