Virtual Participation in General Assembly

Virtual GA Participation

In June 2023, participants will have the option of attending GA in person in Pittsburgh, PA, or by virtual participation online. All General Assembly (GA) 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).

​Delegates will use the GA Delegate Platform to participate in GA Business remotely. The platform will allow delegates to propose amendments in live business sessions, participate in discussion, and vote in General Sessions. Delegates must be registered for GA in order to participate.


Video of some events from General Assembly (GA) 2023 will be live-streamed, June 21-25—no registration required. Live-streamed events will include the General Sessions, Service of the Living Tradition, Synergy Bridging Worship, and Sunday Morning Worship.

The Ware Lecture will not be available for public live-stream or on-demand viewing. In-person registration will be required to attend the event in Pittsburgh. In-person or full virtual registration is required to live-stream the event on June 24, or access the video on-demand.

If health and safety protocols permit, congregations and groups are encouraged to conduct watch parties for GA events that are streamed to and the UUA's YouTube channel. Using GA Video for in-person or online events

    The GA App by Whova

    The GA App by Whova is where registrants can network, connect, and socialize with other registrants and exhibitors. The virtual exhibit hall on the app allows registrants to visit exhibitor booths to collect handouts, talk with the exhibitors, watch videos, and attend live showcase events. GA registration (virtual or in-person participation) is required to access General Assembly on Whova.

    GA registrants can download the Whova app or use the browser-based version. No access code is needed. If you log in to Whova with the same email address used for GA registration, the app will recognize you as a registrant and add General Assembly 2023 to your Whova events.
