UUA General Assembly Delegates Wanted

Please respond by April 15

UUA General Assembly: Faithfully Becoming Pittsburgh June 21-25, 2023

In addition to featuring joyous worship and terrific workshops, the Unitarian Universalist Association’s General Assembly (GA) also includes business meetings of the UUA. This year our congregation is allowed up to nine delegates who participate as voting representatives for UUC in those meetings.

Most years we do not fill all our delegate slots. This year there are three ways to participate: by attending all aspects of GA in person (fees required), attending all of the GA remotely (reduced fees required), or by attending only the business portion of GA remotely (voluntary donation). Given these new options, and the fact that the proposed changes to Article 2 of the UUA Bylaws are on the agenda, the Board believes there may be greater interest in participating as a delegate and has established a process for delegate selection.

Any UUC member in good standing can be a delegate, as long as they are committed to attending all of the business meetings. The Board has prepared a brief questionnaire to help in delegate selection in case more than nine individuals are interested in serving. The Board will select delegates who represent all facets of the diversity of UUC. If a selected delegate is unable to attend, we ask that they let us know so an alternate can fill their spot.

We would like to have delegates identified and registered with the UUA by mid-May, so the Board can select the delegate slate at its April 20 meeting. Click on the brief questionnaire link by no later than April 15 to submit your interest form to be considered as a delegate.

Thanks to everyone interested in participating on behalf of UUC. If you have questions, contact UUC board member, Patricia Graesser at patricia.graesser@uuchurch.org.
