Call for GA Program Proposals
We are excited to invite program proposals for the 2024 Virtual General Assembly's on-demand library. We welcome submissions from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences, with a special emphasis on historically marginalized communities, people of color, and the voices of our youth.
Your proposed programs should offer enriching learning and skill-building experiences, all while aligning with our designated focus areas. Let's collaborate in creating an inclusive and impactful virtual experience for all. The program proposal deadline is Friday, January 12, 2024. Join us in shaping the future of General Assembly!
Business-Only Delegates
We have embraced the transformative power of technology and witnessed dynamic growth in our online community during GA, growing from an average of 60 online participants to as many as 4,900. We’ve also seen a more diverse delegate pool, including many first-timers. This may be, in part, due to the option of registering as a business-only participant. While that option requires no buy-in, there are still costs of livestreaming and maintaining our dedicated platform for delegates. Demand is high and qualified labor is short, which means that today’s price is even higher than in 2020. We ask for a minimum donation of $100 for business-only delegates as a starting point to offset expenses; however, congregations actually donate far less. In 2022, 215 of the 386 business-only delegates made no donation. In 2023, 386 of 538 made no donation. The average of donations received also fell short at $34.46 in 2022 and $45.26 in 2023. Please commit to filling all of your delegate seats for GA 2024 and also making a donation that enables us to have more inclusive participation and a better online experience. Your support truly makes a difference.
