At the 2017 General Assembly (June 21-25) in New Orleans, delegates will elect a new UUA President.
Every four (or more likely, eight) years, the UUA chooses a new president. Our immediate past president is Hispanic, our previous president was African-American, and we are about to break yet another barrier and elect a woman to the presidency at General Assembly in June because all three candidates are women.
