Dear UUCF congregants,

I’m writing to you today to let you know that I have decided to retire in January 2018. After 9 years in this position, I’m looking forward to a change of pace.

As I think about leaving, I am grateful to all of you for giving me the opportunity to work in an organization with values and a mission in sync with mine. That’s a real gift. I also have greatly appreciated the trust you have placed in me and all the encouragement you have given me during my time here.

The exact date of my departure in January is still somewhat flexible as I want to facilitate a smooth transition to the new person hired. And, I won’t be leaving Unitarian Universalism, so hopefully will occasionally have opportunity to cross paths with at least some of you.

Thank you so much for all you have done for me.

Rich Sider
Director of Administration
