The UU Legislative Ministry is proud to announce the hiring of Rev. Craig Hirshberg as our new Executive Director effective May 1, 2011. Our current director, Rev. Julia Hamilton has been hired as Assistant Minister at the Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara, CA.
Rev. Hirshberg comes to the Legislative Ministry with a wealth of experience in the pulpit and in the community. An ordained UU minister for the past 15 years, she was the founding minister at Somerset Hills and helped to build that church from the start to a thriving community of over 150 members. For the last six years Craig has been the Metro New York District Ministerial Settlement Representative and served the last four years as a District Adjunct Training Consultant. Prior to becoming a UU Minister she worked for 16 years serving in local, metropolitan, national and international YMCA organizations. Immediately following college she was a community organizer in Akron, OH.
The organization is excited about the prospects of Craig’s leadership in taking the Legislative Ministry to a new level of success and commitment. Please welcome her warmly as she calls on you to be active in all of our endeavors.
