Dear FA member,
Registration is now open for the 2021 virtual World Service Business Convention (WSBC), which will be held on Saturday, June 5 and Sunday, June 6. Tentative timing for both days is 1:00PM - 6:00PM ET with a break between 3:00PM and 4:00PM ET. The cost is $20 (a late fee of $10 will be applied if you register after the deadline on May 5). Please note there will be no refunds.
If you were elected by your meeting in 2020 to serve as a WSC member, you can serve in 2021 without being elected again. However, you must re-register by March 5. If your registered FA meeting did not elect a WSC member for 2020 or if your WSC member no longer qualifies for the position, you may elect a WSC member for 2021. This process should be completed at an in-person business meeting. A WSC member needs five years of continuous abstinence, completion of at least one AWOL, and must demonstrate physical, mental, and physical recovery. Also, note that WSC members need to register twice--once for the convention itself and a second time as a WSC member.
Registration for the convention will remain open until May 5 at midnight ET.
You must be registered for the 2021 WSBC to access the Meeting ID and passcode. Please see images below.

Please note that positions which were carried over because of the COVID-19 pandemic will be elected for a term of one year. Click here for additional information.
