The UUA General Assembly this year will be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, about an 8-hour drive from SW Michigan. In addition to inspiring programs and educational workshops, the business of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations is conducted at GA. Each congregation gets two delegates for every 50 people in the congregation, with a minimum of two, so BUUF has two. I will be attending Plenary sessions as one of BUUF's delegates. If you are planning to go, please see me and I'll get you through the process of authorization through the BUUF Board. -- Gretchen
