When the Spirit Moves You: The UUA Moves to the Innovation District

The Universal Unitarian Association, a religious organization of over 1,100 congregations throughout the United States, relocated its global headquarters from the historic Beacon Hill district of Boston to the up and coming Innovation District of South Boston. The UUA, with the help of Goody, Clancy & Associates, Inc., and Leggat McCall Properties moved into the new headquarters in May of 2014.
 
The multi-generational and multi-cultural organization felt that its previous space no longer reflected its forward-thinking principles. The UUA hoped to benefit from increased communication between an extremely talented and dedicated staff, while at the same time attracting a new generation of followers. This move involved a drastic shift in their work environment. With an average tenure of 16 years, UUA employees were a highly valued asset that would be hard to replace if this significant relocation was not perceived as positive. Four separate groups within the UUA, all performing very different types of work, had to be accommodated and the design team quickly realized there wasn’t a “one size fits all” solution.
 
The UUA’s new space is flexible, allows for creativity and reflects the organization’s forward-looking principles. Come hear Robert Molla, Director of Human Resources, Mark Steinwinter, Director, Information Technology Services of UUA and Zsuzsanna Gaspar from Goody Clancy talk about how they managed the change culture in a remarkable and very important way.
 

Cancellation Policy:
If you won't be able to make the event, please cancel your registration no less than 48 hours prior to the event to receive a refund and/or avoid a no show fee.

- Meet a group of other moms of 2+ in your area
- Talk, listen, laugh, bond

In our Bonding Again group, each week you will have the chance to spend (uninterrupted) quality time with your new bundle while Bright Horizons offers care and a fun activity for your older child! You’ll share experiences, engage in parenting discussions, gather valuable resources, and ask your parenting questions in order to make this time of major transition smoother, saner, easier and more enjoyable!

After these warm, informative, and friendly sessions, you’ll be fully connected to a great group of other trusted moms of 2+ and feel empowered with (and reminded of) essential newborn skills. Most importantly though, this class will help you adjust to the joys and challenges of being a mom of an older child and a new baby. Topics of discussion can include: how to deal with jealousy, getting out of the house, bedtime, mealtimes & guilt.

Mommybites' support groups are led by facilitators who will guide you to embrace your new role & identity as a mom with more confidence, compassion and humor.

-When: 4 Tuesdays 11/25 - 12/16

-Time: 10-11am 
-Where: Bright Horizons at Mass Ave, Cambridge
-Fee: $120                                 

Instructor: Amy Miller Amy has been working with or advocating for children and families for over ten years. Amy holds a Masters in Elementary Education and Creative Arts in Learning from Lesley University. She has extensive preschool and early elementary teaching experience and also worked for an International nonprofit organization advocating for the health and safety of children aged five and under. Throughout her career she has always loved working with parents and families. When she became a mother herself she learned firsthand how important it is for new parents to have a support system and she is thrilled to be able to help other mothers to share and bond.

What if I have to miss a session?
Life happens (especially as a new mom!) Do what you can to make it each week, but know that the program is valuable even if you have to miss some sessions. We don't prorate our support groups for missed sessions as it's really about getting 4 weeks of support & resources (vs 4 sessions). One of the best parts? Developing friendships with so many supportive moms.

Can I bring my older child?
Yes! Bonding Again is the ONLY Moms of 2 support group that provides care and an activity for your older child while you spend an hour of uninterrupted, quality time with your new baby!

What Mommybites Moms are Saying:

Becoming a new mom was the most exhilarating, exhausting, and intense journey I'd ever experienced. What I found I needed most was a sense of community, which is what this group offers. Meeting up, learning from, and laughing with other new mothers helps turn an uncertain and potentially scary time into a shared adventure...

The New Mom's Support Group for babies is a fun and easy way to bond with other moms. The focus is really on the mom, which is so unique in the vast universe of mommy and me classes in NYC...

I enjoyed taking part in the support group. It is great to be with moms and their little ones born around the same time as my daughter. We shared and learned a lot from each other, but the best thing is that we made friends!

Boston Comedy Festival Stand Up Contest: Semi-finals 3

The Boston Comedy Festival Contest has become known for its ability to provide significant breaks to up-and-coming comics. This is a great chance to see talented comedians destined to be household names.

With Special Guest: 
Tony V


Tony V started his stand-up comedy career in 1982 after attending several shows at Boston’s prestigious Comedy Connection. He wandered in one night, quite by accident, looking for a little stress relief from a high pressure job as a case worker at the Somerville Mental Health Center. Tony was working his way toward a Masters degree in social work having graduated from the University of Massachusetts with a B. S. in Psychology. It was not long after that he took to the stage himself. Tony’s street wise humor tempered with a genuine feel for the human condition quickly propelled him to headliner status on the national comedy club circuit.
In 1986 Tony V was named “Funniest Person in Massachusetts” by Showtime television. He followed this achievement with several performances on HBO, the Arts and Entertainment Network, Comedy Central and MTV. From 1987 through 1992 Tony V became the “spokesperson” for American Tourister Luggage. Remember the suit case smashing gorilla? It was Tony that gave the ape it’s distinct voice and temperament. Touring extensively in and out of his high tech forty-five thousand dollar yak hair gorilla suit, both Tony and his alter ego had many interesting adventures. If you get a chance ask Tony about a meeting between The Gorilla, Spuds MacKenzie and Ronald McDonald. You won’t believe your mind.

Nomad Story Slam

A community story telling night loosely modeled on NPR’s Moth Radio Hour.   The theme of the night will be “on the road”.  Anyone who attends can (but is not required to) throw their name in a hat to tell a story.  The stories should be roughly 5 minutes long, they must be true, and they must have happened to you, and they should somehow be related to the “”on the road” theme – beyond that, its up to you.  It can be funny, or sad, or poignant, or ridiculous – it just has to be a good story.   Everyone has at least one good story in them so we urge you to polish it up, come on down to Gregorian Rugs and tell it to us all. 

If you’ve never been to a “story slam”,  you will love it – friends, neighbors, strangers taking turns telling great stories.
