Registrations must be for specific individuals and are non-transferable. Each registrant should have a unique email address. Once registered, you will be sent email confirmation from generalassembly@uua.org. You may cancel a GA registration by replying to your registration confirmation or contacting the GA Registrar at generalassembly@uua.org. If you register but are unable to attend, your in-person registration will be converted to virtual. Cancellation for virtual registration is $50 per person.

You may register through February 28 with a down payment of $50 by selecting the Early Bird Payment Plan at checkout. Make subsequent payments at your pace; all registration orders must be paid in full by May 15 or are subject to cancellation.

Please note: As of November 2022, the Pittsburgh Port Authority and UUA GA host hotels continue to encourage caution, although neither has COVID-related mandates in effect. In keeping with UU values, your decision to attend GA in person should include an assessment of risk to your own safety, as well as compassion for the most vulnerable in our community who might also be present. In-person attendees must be vaccinated and/or self-test negative for COVID prior to entry in UUA GA spaces. Additionally, in-person attendees agree to safely distance from others when eating and/or singing, and to wear approved face masks while indoors and in close proximity. Those who cannot honor safety and wellness requirements will have their in-person registration converted to virtual participant, with the difference in cost either refunded or, if requested, donated toward financial support for other attendees with need.

    Registration Is Required for All Participants

    All participants in General Assembly programmed events must be registered.

    • Full Virtual registrants receive access to live-streamed events, networking tools, pre-recorded content, and the virtual exhibit hall.
    • In-person registrants receive access to all workshops, performances, lectures, and events listed in the GA Program, the exhibit hall, and everything offered to Full Virtual registrants.

    Registration is required for program presenters, invited guests, performers, office support staff, relatives, hosts, and dignitaries. This policy is consistent with our principle of equity and avoids arbitrary distinctions.

    In-person Events Available to the Public: The Service of the Living Tradition, Synergy Bridging Worship, and Sunday Morning Worship are open to visitors who are vaccinated, masked, and sign an agreement to honor the guidelines in place for the event.
