celebrants at the 2019 General Assembly Sunday Morning Worship
General Assembly—June 24-28, 2020, Providence, RI

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.

In 2020, most GA events will take place in the Rhode Island Convention Center (1 Sabin St, Providence, RI 02903) and the adjacent Dunkin' Donuts Center. Google Map

COVID-19: General Assembly Update

Year after year, General Assembly gives us an opportunity to pause and be together, reminding us of our connection to each other and to our shared Unitarian Universalist faith. In that regard, General Assembly 2020 is no different. While the Conference Services team and GA Planning Committee are working to adapt to the unprecedented needs of this moment, the mission of our work remains the same.

We are monitoring local and national news, as well as hotel and conference service industry organizations, for updates, protocols, and advice about the spread of the coronavirus in the United States. We are discerning how General Assembly will be shaped to meet changes and challenges, but we are sure that General Assembly will take place from June 24 – June 28, 2020.

In the weeks ahead, we will keep you informed to this very fluid situation. Unitarian Universalism teaches us to stay connected, especially in uncertain times. We are hopeful and encourage you take good care of yourselves and one another even as we hold those who are directly affected by this crisis in our thoughts and prayers. ​

Rooted, Inspired, & Ready!
