General Assembly 2023 is now over and most of us have or are in the process of returning from Pittsburgh, PA to our homes, or have turned off our computers and turned to other activities at home. We wanted to give you a quick update on what happened and where you can find more details.
Several worship events are also available online for the general public. The links below will take you to the pages for these events:
Do note the Ware Lecture and workshops are only available to those who were registered for General Assembly as an onsite or offsite attendee.
If you missed any of the general business sessions you can find them on the UUA website as videos. Each day's video has a listing of the activities that occurred in that session. Access the list of business sessions.
