General Assembly (GA) is the annual meeting of our Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). Participants worship, witness, learn, connect, and make policy for the Association through democratic process. Anyone may attend; congregations must certify annually to have voting delegates.

Local Accessibility Information
Congregational delegates, who register for GA, may access the GA Delegate Participation Platform, and vote on items in the 2023 Business Agenda. Each delegate credential also includes a unique link, which can be used to vote in the UUA Election this June. General Assembly registration is not required to vote in the election.
In June 2023, participants will have the option of attending GA in person in Pittsburgh, PA, or by virtual participation online. In June, all General Assembly registrants will have access to the GA event app, which combines multiple modes of participant engagement. Registrants are able to watch and ask questions in live sessions including workshops and business sessions (mini-assemblies, hearings, etc).
Every effort will be made to provide you with accommodations or assistive equipment to enable or enhance your GA experience. Whether you're attending in person or virtually, an Accessibility Services Coordinator will be available before and during GA to provide information and coordinate assistance to individuals with accessibility needs.
For five days each June, Unitarian Universalists come together to form the General Assembly community. During this dynamic and exciting time, relationships are formed within and across many identities, including age.
