2021 ACT Alliance Electronic Assembly

November 29 – December 3, online

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. Updated information will be posted from September 2021 until the date of the Electronic Assembly.


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 that will be discussed at the assembly will be posted here for delegates to download and read.
