In light of concerns around COVID-19, the decision has been made to postpone General Council 44, previously slated for July 2021 in Calgary, AB, to 2022. Commissioners came to this decision at a special electronic meeting held on June 20, 2020. Minutes from this meeting will be posted to the United Church Commons in the coming days.

“As we look forward to hosting GC44 in Calgary, Alberta we also want to be respectful of every person’s health and wellbeing during this pandemic time,” said Sue Brodrick, co-chair of the GC44 Planning Committee. “The GC44 Planning Committee wants this meeting to be a great experience for all Commissioners, global partners, staff and guests; we anticipate that, by moving GC44 to 2022, we can accomplish this.”

Updates related to this possible postponement will be posted to the General Council 43 website. For the most up-to-date information, please visit the online home of General Council 43.
