2019 GENERAL ASSEMBLY!

SPOKANE, WASHINGTON is the host city for the 2019 GENERAL ASSEMBLY!

Two and a half hours by air (United is the only non-stop) or two and a half days on the road (1100 miles).  Registration opens on March 1st at uua.org/ga/registration.

There is always a wealth of information available from this web site.

 

This year’s theme is: “THE POWER OF WE”

It will be an exploration of our collective powers, and what it means to be together in faithful community.  Unitarian Universalism has recommitted to the work of liberation both inside, and outside of our faith communities. The antidote for a time of dangerous dehumanization, is the love that connects us to our deeper humanity. Come experience what our shared faith can become when we embrace the “Power of We”!

 

Reservation services for both hotels and/or alternative accommodations also become available on March 1st.  Please use these services, as they allow you access to the best negotiated rates available; and assist the GA Planning Committee, to continue offering high quality  programming. There are two main hotels, the Davenport Grand (designated GA HQ) and the Doubletree by Hilton, adjacent to the Spokane Convention Center.

 

The 2019 Full Adult Registration fee is $425.  150 to 200 volunteers are needed each year, in order to achieve a successful GA.  This registration fee is waived, for persons accepted as Volunteers — in return for 18 hours of their donated time.  

 

Volunteer job descriptions and other application information is found listed at the website above: (follow the tracks to Financial Aid and Volunteering Opportunities)  Volunteer applications must be submitted before April 1st, 2019!

 

If you are planning to attend the 2019 General Assembly; have questions about volunteering; or would like to hear more about any other aspect of a GA — either

Fred Cole or Barbara Richards (or both) are here to talk with you.

 

The experience of a General Assembly is unlike almost anything else that you can do as a Unitarian Universalist. This is where much of the larger work of our UU movement is accomplished!…………….Fred M. Cole — UUCB’s Denominational Representative
