Represent First U at GA

You can represent our congregation as a voting delegate at this year’s General Assembly in Pittsburgh. Why do this? Apart from attending GA and taking part in inspirational workshops and worship services, the General Assembly is where the business of our denomination is conducted. Policies are debated and voted on and emerging issues are targeted for future action. You’ll be working with other UU leaders to shape the future of our faith with the election of a new UUA president and the planned revisions to the Association’s bylaws.

While there are many reasons to attend GA in person, you don’t actually have to be there — you can attend online. You can even be a delegate online. However, this year’s GA is much more convenient than last year’s in Portland, Oregon. It’s in Pittsburgh — an easy day’s drive – and takes place Wednesday, June 21 – Sunday, June 25, both in-person and online with the theme of “Faithfully Becoming.”

There’s even an added incentive for baseball fans who arrive on Tuesday. The UUA has negotiated group prices for tickets to watch the Pittsburgh Pirates play the Chicago Cubs. This is your chance to see firsthand how America’s pastime is being played under new rules. Moreover, the UUA ticket price includes UNLIMITED hot dogs, nachos, popcorn, peanuts and soda! What better way to prepare for the summer solstice on Wednesday?

If you’re interested in serving as a delegate, please reach out to Board Co-Presidents Leslie Dickerson,, or Cinda Crane,, by May 1, 2023. Delegates will be affirmed at our annual meeting in May.
