The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Board of Trustees has passed a resolution to make the 2020 General Assembly (GA) a 100% virtual event. This decision alleviates the anxiety and concern shared by many about how GA might proceed given the impact of COVID-19. It also gives the Association time to plan a more robust and rewarding virtual experience.
A virtual GA has many benefits, including a significant reduction in its carbon footprint and the possibility of higher attendance, since it is more accessible for delegates and anyone else burdened by travel costs or time.
For many years, the UUA has offered virtual attendance as an option and, this year, GA will scale and enhance its technology so that it can accommodate a wider, ideally more global, audience.
Registration is $150. The registration for the in-person event had been $400.
You can learn more, and register, at the GA section of the UUA website.
All UUs are welcome to attend GA. If you would like to apply to be a Heritage UU Church delegate at GA, please contact Board President Jim Nolan at:
