1977 Business Resolution

WHEREAS, the Commission on Appraisal has studied the representative nature of the General Assembly; and

WHEREAS, we ourselves wholeheartedly wish to put into practice in our meetings what we have urged upon others regarding full inclusion with dignity of handicapped persons and the elderly; and

WHEREAS, one of the main purposes of General Assemblies is to afford Unitarian Universalists the opportunity to gather together to reaffirm our solidarity and to deepen our spirit; and

WHEREAS, communications, fellowship and full participation can be difficult for the elderly, the handicapped and others with special needs where housing is dispersed;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: That the 1977 General Assembly instructs the Planning Committee to consider the following criteria when securing facilities for future General Assemblies:

  1. Ease of registration;
  2. Adequate access for the handicapped, the elderly and others with special needs;
  3. Efficiency of meal service;
  4. Ease of communications; and
  5. Adequate space for large and small meetings.
