UUA General Assembly
Every year, Unitarian Universalists from around the country and around the world gather for General Assembly (GA), the annual meeting of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). Attendees meet to worship, witness, learn, connect, and make policy for the Association. Anyone may attend (with registration). Congregations that are certified members of the UUA may send voting delegates.
