UMA Peer Networks

UMA is a national association of diverse ministries serving children, youth and family, seniors and persons with disabilities. Our common mission is to promote, inspire, recognize and empower excellence in human service ministries.

Our Peer Networks allow UMA members to build relationships with colleagues while sharing best practices through formal and informal presentations throughout the year. Members can support the networks by attending calls, suggesting topics of interest or recommending speakers that would benefit others within the network.

UMA business members interested in sharing your expertise, can contact us at askUMA@ouruma.org.
