General Assembly (GA), the annual meeting of our Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), is an experience every Unitarian Universalist (UU) should have at least once! Participants at GA worship, witness, learn, connect, and make policy for the Association through the democratic process. GA is an opportunity to bring UUCWC to the larger movement and to bring the movement back home to us. Anyone may attend; congregations must certify annually to have voting delegates.
Spend a few days with a ‘city’ full of UUs in this year’s venue—Portland, Oregon! Or, attend virtually, as both options are available in 2022. Last year, GA had more than 4,000 registered attendees participate from remote locations around the world. Even in the absence of face-to-face interaction and hugs that are prevalent when we meet in-person, the last two virtual GAs were both meaningful and successful. For those who enjoyed the convenience and accessibility of remote participation, GA will continue to offer robust virtual programming and enhanced delegate discussion tools. For those who have been missing the physical experience, GA 2022 will also feature face-to-face interactions, hanging banners, a browsable exhibit hall, meals with friends old and new, local site attractions, and more! Join us June 22 – 26, 2022, online or in-person in Portland. This year’s theme is Meet in the Moment: Reimagining Radical Faith Community.
All GA attendees and exhibitors are required to provide proof of Covid-19 Vaccination for in-person attendance. In addition, masking is required and physically distanced seating options will be reserved in our meeting spaces. Currently, free Covid-19 testing is available Monday to Saturday from 8 am – 3 pm, by appointment or walk-in, at a testing site in front of the Oregon Convention Center. Appointments may be scheduled online.
HIGHLIGHTS of GA 2022 include:
• Numerous sessions on justice and the environment
• WARE LECTURE (Speaker to be named)
• Service of the Living Tradition
• Synergy Bridging Worship (THE highlight for youth/UUs and the future for us all)
• Music! Worship
• Connection in new ways!!

Scholarship help is available. But we need to know if you’re planning on attending in Portland or online. If you’d like to be a delegate, a small donation to support tech is requested.
Please consider attending. The DEADLINE for scholarship money is MAY 1.
