General Assembly (GA) is the annual meeting of our Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). Attendees worship, witness, learn, connect, and make policy for the Association through democratic process. Anyone may attend; congregations must certify annually to send voting delegates.
The theme for GA 2015 is Building a New Way. Most events will be held in the Oregon Convention Center, 777 NE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Portland, OR 97232. Google map.
The Unitarian Universalist Association Board of Trustees has been engaged in efforts to ensure governance of our Association is more effective, democratic, and inclusive. We’ve made progress, yet the Board has identified some long-standing challenges that remain.
The UUA Board and Moderator Jim Key invite you to explore possibilities for re-imagining governance – from small-scale fixes to broad changes – and comment on them. These are possibilities, not proposals. Please complete the online survey, “Re-Imagining UUA Governance.” It will take 15-20 minutes and will be available through December 20, 2014.

The General Assembly Planning Committee selects the site for each General Assembly, sets the daily schedule, and determines which organizations affiliated with the UUA may present program material. In addition, the committee oversees the annual Ware Lecture, Opening Events, music, ambiance, and evening activities. The UUA Board, based on recommendations by the Planning Committee, selects GA sites four to five years in advance. Site selection criteria.
The General Assembly Planning Committee is committed to addressing the inclusion of all people, whatever their abilities might be, in all GA activities.
