Although delegates at this year’s General Assembly will be taking a preliminary vote on the first comprehensive revision of the UUA's Principles and Purposes since 1985, the big story at GA will be the election of a new UUA president on Saturday, June 27. The Rev. Dr. Laurel Hallman of Dallas and the Rev. Peter Morales of Golden, Colo., will be campaigning aggressively for undecided delegates’ votes. (Read UU World’s profiles of Hallman and Morales, and visit UUA.org’s Election section for more information, including videos and transcripts of several presidential candidates’ debates.) The winner will be announced Saturday evening.
Other items on the agenda include:
The business agenda includes the slate of candidates for UUA elections, the text of bylaw changes and the proposed Statement of Conscience, and the rules of procedure.
UU World’s team at GA this year includes Christopher L. Walton, editor; Donald E. Skinner, contributing editor; and Sonja L. Cohen, assistant editor.
