“General Assembly (GA) is the annual meeting of our Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). Attendees worship, witness, learn, connect, and make policy for the Association through democratic process. Anyone may attend; congregations must certify annually to send voting delegates.” – www.uua.org/ga
General Assembly is held in a different location every year. In 2019 it was in Spokane, WA, but General Assembly is in Providence, RI next June 24-28, 2020!
According to the UUA website (see link above), “Providence combines the best of a quaint New England town with the amenities and hip sophistication of a big city. Acclaimed restaurants, a vibrant arts and culture scene, and beautifully preserved historic architecture combine to make Providence a destination for inspiration.” I grew up in Providence’s suburbs and I agree, it’s a great little city, even more exciting and cosmopolitan than when I was hanging out there in the 1980s.
Look for updates and more information about GA in this year’s Messengers. Attending GA, even as a day trip, is a worthwhile experience, and one I hope you’ll consider adding to your 2020 wish list. —Jill M. Hall, DRE
