Home Page

ACT Alliance will be holding an Electronic General Assembly November 29-December 3, 2021. The primary purpose of the Assembly is to elect a new Governing Board, officers, and Membership and Nominations Committee. The assembly will also allow for member conversations and learning, worship, and a public event. The theme of the assembly is Hope in Action: Putting People First. A cross-cutting issue that will be incorporated into our work is Youth and Climate Justice.

Practical information

Each ACT member may send one voting and, if they wish, one non-voting delegate to the ACT Assembly and one youth delegate. 

Governance

The key governance decision to be made in the 2021 Electronic General Assembly is: the elections (for members of the Governing Board, the Officers and members of the Membership and Nominations Committee).

Documents

Documents that will be discussed at the assembly have been sent directly to registered participants in the ACT Assembly.
