Discussion Groups at GA

In order to provide follow-up opportunities for General Assembly (GA) attendees to discuss and process what was learned in GA programs, the Planning Committee has arranged for follow-up discussion groups. Leaders of all GA programs were given the opportunity to reserve a discussion room for follow-up conversation. Review a current list of Discussion Groups (PDF). An updated list will be published in the first day newsletter at GA and will be posted at the local information table in the lobby of the Minneapolis Convention Center. Discussion Groups are scheduled for Saturday, June 26 and Sunday, June 27.

2014 General Assembly in Providence, RI!

Unitarian Universalists will converge in Providence, RI for the 53rd General Assembly!   This will mark the first time that the Ballou Channing District is the host district for GA.  It will have been 11 years since GA was last in the northeast. The 2003 Boston GA was the largest assembly of Unitarian Universalists in history!  The 2014 GA has the potential to match that turnout.

Providence combines the accessibility and friendliness of a small town with the culture and sophistication of a big city.  With a thriving arts community, vibrant and diverse neighborhoods, outstanding hotels, a renowned restaurant scene and so many things to do, Providence is the perfect place to visit.  The city’s compact size and convenient location make it easy to get to and hard to forget.   The the scenic beauty and rich history of Rhode Island’s other regions are a quick drive away.   Historic and hip, sophisticated and small-town, Providence packs the best of New England into one convenient and colorful package.
