This year’s General Assembly, the annual summer gathering of UU’s from across the United States, is going to be virtual! “A virtual GA has many benefits, including a significant reduction in our carbon footprint and the possibility of higher attendance, since it is more accessible for delegates and anyone else burdened by travel costs or time.” Virtual attendance has been offered for GA for a number of years, and the planning staff is hard at work scaling and enhancing technology to accommodate a wider and larger audience.
The General Assembly is the annual meeting of our Unitarian Universalist Association, and participants worship, witness, learn, connect, and make policy for the Association through democratic process.
The General Assembly is scheduled for June 24-26; registration for the virtual gathering is $150. For more information, and to register, go to www.uua.org/ga.
UUCJ is allowed five delegates (based on the size of our congregation). All delegates need to be registered for General Assembly to participate in debate or voting on GA Business Agenda items, but not in UUA Elections. More information about the delegate process is on the www.uua.org/ga website. If you are interested in being a delegate this year, please contact Penny Reid, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or any other Board member. We have four available slots at this time.
