The General Assembly (GA) Volunteer Committee provides GA registration in exchange for volunteer work at GA. Volunteer Applications must be submitted by March 31. Adult volunteers are required to contribute 24 hours. Youth (grades 9-12) volunteers and those who qualify for reduced registration rates are required to contribute 14 hours.
Please do not register for General Assembly while your volunteer application is pending.
Volunteers may request first and second choices for volunteer assignment. Registration volunteers usually work intensely at the beginning of GA and many are done by the weekend. Ushers work during Plenary (business meeting) sessions, so they will likely have lighter schedules on Thursday and Friday and then work intensely on the weekend. Other assignments (Cyber Café, Service Project, and Volunteer Office) may be able to provide a more balanced schedule.
Volunteers are notified of their acceptance in April, before the May 1 registration rate increase.
The General Assembly Planning Committee (GAPC) is committed to providing a rich and rewarding experience to all attendees at General Assemblies. As a part of this commitment, the General Assembly Planning Committee is funding GA registrations for six volunteers selected to serve as GA Chaplains. These individuals must be Unitarian Universalist Association fellowshipped ministers, preferably in final fellowship, competent and comfortable with AR/AO/MC understanding and practice. Applicants should be in good standing with the Ministerial Fellowship Committee (MFC) and the Unitarian Universalist Ministers Association (UUMA), have excellent pastoral skills, and bring knowledge and skills in both anti-oppression work and cultural sensitivity.
If you are interested in being considered, please review the Chaplain application and job description. The application deadline was March 1st.
