Plan Your Virtual Attendance at General Assembly

Principles and Purposes to be Debated


“As a first-time GA attendee and relatively recent UU, it was a mind-blowing experience to get to participate in the future of our faith. I think being able to be part of the discussion around who we are and where we are going is very unique to us!”

~Ryan Pawlowski, reflecting on his experience attending GA last year


First Church NEEDS YOU as a delegate to General Assembly (GA) this year! GA is our annual national conference of UU congregations. It is when delegates conduct our Association’s business plus participate in many wonderful workshops and religious services. GA is all-virtual this year June 20-23.

The major business item is voting on a revision to our Principles and Purposes. Technically, it is called “Article II Revision” because it is a revision of Article II of our Association’s by-laws. Next month’s Chanticleer will contain a description of the proposals and amendments that will be debated before the final vote.

First Church has about half of our delegate slots filled so there is room for another 6 delegates. We have some money to help pay the registration cost. And for the first time, delegates may register for “business only” parts for a free-will donation. For details, see me and review the info about GA on the UUA website: https://www.uua.org/gahttps://www.uua.org/ga
