  1. I am trying to find out which two congregations received A.I.M.Certification at GA 2017. Been searching but can’t find anything naming them. I am preparing a report on GA to my Board and want to encourage them to support A.I.M. Certification in Westport.

    1. The two congregations that received AIM Certification at GA 2017 were First Parish Bedford, Mass, and UU Church of Las Cruces New Mexico. Sorry for being so late in responding.
