Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce the hiring of our new Office Administrator, Mary Ellen Morgan, and our new Acting Executive Director, Laurice Grae-Hauck!

Mary Ellen hails from Vallejo, CA and is currently a part-time seminarian at Meadville-Lombard Theological School. She has been deeply involved with Unitarian Universalism for decades: she is a former President of the Association of Unitarian Universalist Administrators and brings with her a long history of professional accounting work for churches, nonprofit organizations, individuals, and small businesses.

Laurice (pronounced LOR-is) is from New Jersey and has a background that has connected her UU faith and her first career as an artist in engaging ways.  She served as Manager of Digital Communications and Marketing for New Jersey Theatre Alliance, a nonprofit arts service organization, and as the Outreach Coordinator/Business Administrator for the Unitarian Universalist Legislative Ministry of NJ. She has strong connections to Unitarian Universalism, nonprofit arts management, and strategic communications. And incidentally, if the last name is familiar – yes, her spouse is our AUUMM colleague, Markus Grae-Hauck.

To learn more about Laurice and Mary Ellen visit the staff page.

Mary Ellen has already started her work for our organization and Laurice’s start-up has also begun. Please join me in welcoming Mary Ellen and Laurice to the AUUMM while also extending our thanks to Jyvonne Haskin for filling in as our temporary office administrator after Julie Enersen retired in August.  Jyvonne will be stepping into her new role as Treasurer of the Board of Trustees as of January 1. The future of AUUMM is bright indeed, as we welcome our new staff to our organization!


Shawn McCann, President, AUUMM
