National Convention 2018 Information

** National Convention is open to registered Bahá’ís only **

Attendance of non-Bahá’ís at Conventions

The National Spiritual Assembly has sought the guidance of the Universal House of Justice regarding the attendance of non-Bahá’ís at National and unit conventions and has received the following reply dated 9 January 2012:

Your email letter dated 2 September 2011 concerning the attendance of individuals who are not Bahá’ís at National Convention has been received at the Bahá’í World Centre and referred to our Department for response. We can confirm that attendance at unit conventions and the National Convention is limited to members of the Bahá’í community.

It is important to be aware, therefore, that non-Bahá’í family members and friends of the Faith may not attend National or unit conventions. This includes both the Convention sessions and the surrounding activities. Thus for National Convention it will not be possible for non-Bahá’ís to register for the event…

(The National Spiritual Assembly, extract from a letter dated 26 January 2012)

Important Notes:


Please bring your Bahá’í credential card with you as this is your proof of identity and will act as your Convention badge.
