Pacific Northwest District Annual Meeting
Saturday during General Assembly

The 2015 Unitarian Universalist Association General Assembly is right around the corner! June 24-28, UUs from across the country will gather in Portland, Oregon. If you ask former GA-goers to name their favorite part of GA, you’ll get a variety of answers: Service of the Living Tradition, opening ceremony, informative programming, giant worship services, etc. (And, yes, there are even those who love the plenary sessions.) The packed schedule can be a bit daunting, especially to GA newbies. Before you go, take a look at this practical advice offered by General Assembly veterans.

One important event happening in conjunction with GA is the Annual Meeting of the Pacific Northwest District. Since so many PNWDers will be in the neighborhood, we figured this would be a great way to cut travel costs and conduct the annual business of the district. We will convene at the DoubleTree by Hilton (1000 NE Multnomah Street) in the Multnomah/Holladay rooms on Saturday, June 27 promptly at 1:00.

Things you need to know about this meeting:
- Anyone is invited to attend! GA registration is not required. GA nametag not needed for entrance.
- If you are a certified delegate, please arrive early. Delegate check-in will open by 12:30.
- Don’t think you’ll have time to finish lunch before the 1:00 start? Bring it with you.

There are many, many changes afoot in our district. So even if you aren’t a delegate from your congregation, you may want to attend to learn about these. At the very least, please peruse the business meeting materials posted on the Annual Meeting website. Among the topics to be covered:

- The shift from PNWD staff to a unified staff structure including the three other western districts.

Want all of your materials in one handy document? Download a PDF of the full Annual Business Meeting packet. This 41-page PDF includes all individual items linked above.

If you have been certified as a delegate for your congregation, please familiarize yourself with the items for the Annual Business Meeting. Limited copies of a printed packet will be available on site, but there will be very little time to digest the contents before the meeting convenes. 

Be sure to check the PNWD Annual Meeting website for complete postings, additional information and last-minute updates.
