5.1 General Assembly Planning Committee: UUA Governance Manual

The General Assembly Planning Committee (GAPC) is responsible for the arrangements, programs and meetings to be held in connection with General Assembly, subject to the overall policy and direction established by the General Assembly.

To this end, the GAPC shall not fail to:

  1. Ensure that directives regarding General Assembly that are adopted by the General Assembly Delegates are fully implemented. 
    1. Collaborate with the GA 2012 Accountability Group (AG) and address any issues raised by the AG to the satisfaction of the AG as the Planning Committee prepares the arrangements, programs (including justice work) and meetings for GA 2012.  If issues cannot be resolved, the GAPC shall not fail to raise such issues to the Board in a timely manner.  This policy does not preclude the AG or the President from raising issues to the Board which they believe cannot or are not being resolved in a timely manner.  This sub-policy shall sunset in October 2012.
  2. Develop plans for General Assembly with an eye towards expanding accessibility and the ability of all UUs to participate in the Assembly, whether they be delegates or participating in other associated activities.
  3. Ensure that the Board’s needs for plenary time at General Assembly are met.
