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
Multi-Platform General Assembly
General Assembly is the annual gathering of Unitarian Universalists, where we conduct business of the Association, explore the theological underpinnings of our faith, and lean fully into our mission and principles. That remains true even when we cannot gather physically. In 2021, GA had more than 4,000 registered attendees participate from remote locations around the world. Although we give up the face-to-face interaction and hugs that are prevalent when we meet in-person, we retain our dedication to community and make our experience more accessible and more environmentally sustainable.
In 2022, we will have the option of meeting online or in-person! For those who enjoyed the convenience and accessibility of remote participation, General Assembly will continue to offer virtual attendance with robust programming and enhanced delegate discussion tools. For those who have been missing the physical experience, GA 2022 will also feature face-to-face interactions, hanging banners, a browsable exhibit hall, meals with friends old and new, local site attractions, and more! Join us June 22 - 26, 2022 online or in-person in Portland, Oregon.
GA 2022 live-streamed events and on-demand video, including General Sessions, the Service of the Living Tradition, Synergy Bridging Worship, and the Sunday Morning Worship will be available on uua.org and the UUA's YouTube channel. The Sunday Worship will be live-streamed at 9:30 a.m. Pacific time, and posted for on-demand viewing soon thereafter. The Ware Lecture is only available to full virtual or in-person GA registrants.

Virtual content for in-person and full virtual registrants is on the GA app, Whova, and accessible on a web browser or by downloading the Whova app. Create a Whova account with the same email used for GA registration; no invitation code needed.
