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
The UUA Board of Trustees has passed a resolution making the 2021 UUA General Assembly a 100% virtual event. Let’s reach record-breaking attendance June 23-27, 2021!
Why Virtual 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. Last year, GA had more than 4,900 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.
Registration for virtual GA 2021 is now open!Registration is $200 per person. Financial support for registration as well as a payment plan are available. General Assembly registrants receive access to the 2021 Online Participation Portal, including live, simulive, and on-demand video content, the virtual exhibit hall, chat features, support, and a (new!) GA mobile app.
PROPOSE A PROGRAM
A variety of GA programs will provide registrants with tools to live into our mission and continue the work of our faith. You are warmly invited you to submit a Program Proposal for the 2021 Virtual UUA General Assembly. Proposals are due in two phases. Phase 1: Due January 15. Phase 2: Due January 29.
SPONSORSHIP, EXHIBITING, & ADVERTISING
GA is an unforgettable experience for the 5,000+ attendees from 750+ UU congregations. This June we will reconvene as an all-virtual event. We are pleased to offer premium sponsorship packages, virtual exhibit booths, and other advertising opportunities which will provide top-notch exposure to your organization.
