The UU Association of Congregations

The Unitarian Universalist (UU) Association of Congregations is the primarily North American organizational body that congregations choose to be in relationship for the good of the whole UU liberal religious movement. We gather together once a year at a General Assembly to learn from each other, voice our opinions, and speak to the larger world. Unitarian Universalists across the rest of the world may choose to belong to the International Council of Unitarian Universalists (ICUU).

General Assembly 2017


General Assembly (GA) is the annual meeting of our Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). Attendees worship, witness, learn, connect, and make policy for the Association through the democratic process. Anyone may attend.
This year’s GA will be held June 21-25, 2017, in New Orleans, LA. GA registration begins on March 1. General Assembly offers numerous programming choices during the 5 days, including workshops, lectures, and worship.
