UU Trivia Question of the Day #36

Did you know that there’s more than one kind of General Assembly?  Regular General Assemblies are scheduled far in advance these days, but UUs can also call a Special General Assembly and use it to make binding rules or do other business pertaining to the UUA, just like a regular GA.  Putting together a Special General Assembly takes organization, but is in some ways surprisingly easy, considering what fraction of UUs is required to call it.

How is a Special General Assembly called?

  1. 50 Congregations, no more than 20 of which from the same district (thus a minimum of 3 districts must be involved), by vote of the Congregation or its governing board, can petition the Board to force it to call a Special General Assembly.

    The Board itself can call a Special GA whenever it likes.
