115th Annual Convention coverage

US BAHÁ’Í NATIONAL CONVENTION— Following yesterday’s casting of ballots by delegates to elect the National Spiritual Assembly, it was announced by the Chief Teller that a tie for the 9th place had occurred. Consequently, a vote to break the tie took place in the afternoon, and efforts to contact all absent delegates for their vote continued throughout the evening. The results of the National Assembly election were officially announced this morning at the convention.

The elected members of the National Spiritual Assembly, the national governing body of the Bahá’ís of the United States, have been determined. Delegates at the 115th National Bahá’í Convention cast ballots to elect the nine members who will serve on the National Spiritual Assembly.

The newly elected members are David Young, Nanabah Kahn Foguth, Kenneth Bowers, Rabi Musah, Muin Afnani, Robert C. Henderson, Fariba Aghdasi, June Thomas, and Kevin Trotter.

Members are elected for one-year terms.

We would love to hear from you
