UUCC Sets General Assembly Delegate Selection Process

UUCC needs 7 Delegates for General Assembly.

The Unitarian Universalist Association’s annual meeting, General Assembly (GA) will be held in Pittsburgh June 21-25, 2023. The UUCC Board has just adopted a new process to better organize the selection of delegates and the work they do prior to GA. It is the responsibility of the UUCC Board to designate up to 7 delegates for our congregation. Please note one may attend GA without serving as a delegate! Attending workshops, networking events and worship services are amazing experiences. 

The business of the UUA is also conducted during the General Assembly and that’s where delegates come in.  If you’d like to be considered, here are some expectations:

  1. Read and respond to all emails about GA business from the UUA throughout the Spring. Many changes to wording of proposals are worked out in advance of the GA itself. 
  2. Participate in at least one informational/discussion meeting with the congregation at UUCC prior to GA to discuss known business resolutions, candidates for election, etc. 
  3. Attend UUA Board-led Workshops virtually, generally in April 
  4. Attend the mini assemblies virtually, generally one or two weeks before GA 
  5. Attend all GA business sessions and vote electronically as directed 
  6. With fellow delegates, provide feedback to the congregation after GA. This could be a written report, a pulpit announcement after consultation with the worship committee, a discussion, or another creative idea.

Scholarships to attend GA are available, both through the UUA and through UUCC.

If you have questions about being a delegate or if you’d like to be a delegate, please contact the Board of Trustees at board@uucleveland.org. The deadline to apply will be mid February, so delegates can be voted on in the late February UUCC Board meeting.  

Please consider this great opportunity to learn what other UUs across the country are doing, enrich your leadership skills, and engage in powerful worship and actions of immediate witness.
