On Three Pillars, Jeff Peace (Antonius 99), who is not a member of the UGLA, but is on the sublime council of the RRCG and who was answering questions about UGLA on the site, stated:
In a nutshell here is what the UGLA is all about.
1. The brotherhood of man under the All-Seeing Eye of Deity.
(Every organization should be able to clearly state its mission.)
2. Give the Lodges the power to make the changes they need to at the local level to meet the needs of their members.
3. Get out of the silly recognition business and try to unite American Free-Masons in a way where they can work together productively in an enviorment free from fear.
(If the Masons fear retribution from the Grand Lodge then they will not feel empowered to act responsibly and fix problems at the local level.)
4. Keep the money at the lodge level and don't hoard it at the Grand Lodge level. The lodges need remodeling and upkeep. Modern Masonry can't afford a top heavy organization.
I see that #3 is going the way of the dodo.
