General Assembly, the annual meeting of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations, is less than two months away!
Now is the time to start planning and promoting your congregation’s local events to participate in General Assembly via live streaming video and social media! If one person in your congregation is planning on watching why not make it a group event?
Events can be anything from a few people watching via a computer in someone’s home to a congregational event using a projector screen.
This year’s GA on June 22-26, 2011 in Charlotte, NC marks the 50th anniversary of the merger of the American Unitarian Association and the Universalist Church of America. This means there will be an extra festive atmosphere.
Whether you watch only a few high-profile events such as the Ware Lecture or follow the entire conference, all it takes is a few people gathered around a computer to have a local GA event. And since it is the 50th, why not throw in a cake and make it a party?
When is the deadline for June’s newsletter deadline? If you don’t have time to organize the full event by then you can at least put out a call for people who are interested in participating and/or hosting.
If you schedule an event, make sure to check out related UU General Assembly social media. Many of us at GA will be tweeting and reporting via blogs and Facebook. There will be information on the live coverage page, as well as here on the UU Growth Blog.
