The following is part of an article, by UUA’s President Rev. Dr Susan Frederick-Gray and LaTonya Richardson posted on the UUA website on April 16 (uua.org):
“The UUA Board passed a resolution authorizing a 100% virtual GA for 2020. The Board’s decision … gave the UUA’s Internet Technology Services team and program presenters time to plan a more robust and rewarding virtual experience.
“A 100% virtual GA comes at a time when many UU congregations have embraced virtual meetings and virtual Sunday services. Although this pandemic has been challenging for many, a silver lining is that UUs are adapting to and seeing the value of incorporating technology into their religious lives. With so many UUs already online, this year’s GA could well be our highest-attended Unitarian Universalist gathering in history! It will be accessible to a more diverse and global audience. It will also help reduce our carbon footprint, which aligns with our commitment to care for the earth and environment.”
See the UUA web site to see how to register /check-in GA and read more about their decision to go virtual.
