Recap of General Assembly News, Delegate Decisions

With 4,754 registered for the UUA's annual meeting and conference, General Assembly 2014 (GA) was the scene for vibrant worship, active and reflective exploration of the theme “Love Reaches Out,” and lively deliberations on a variety of business and governance decisions for our Association of congregations.

The UU World On-Line offered comprehensive coverage of GA as events unfolded, and much of the Assembly worship services, lectures, reports, presentations, workshops and other activities are available on video or audio through the UUA website. Additional recordings, written summaries and print materials will be posted by the end of July.
 
 
659 of the UUA's member congregations - about 63% - from all 50 states had members present at General Assembly this year, though only 579 named voting delegates. The assembly heard reports from the UUA Board of Trustees and volunteers and from UUA staff. The 1920 seated delegates, including 105 offsite delegates (from 68 congregations in 30 states) voted on several issues before the Assembly:
An Action of Immediate Witness (AIW) "expresses the conscience and carries the authority of the delegates at the GA at which it is passed." Because AIWs have not been brought to all congregations for their reflection and debate, they are not considered official statements of the UUA. 
 
A Congregational Study & Action Issue (CSAI) moves through a three-year period of study and action with opportunities for congregational and district comment and may become an official Statement of Conscience if approved by delegates to GA after the study period is complete. 
 
Delegates also engaged in continued discussion and received updates on issues which will come up for votes in future years:
