Change in conference date announced
Friends World Committee for Consultation welcomes the news that the people of Kenya have approved their new constitution. We pray that it will help Kenya to move forward in peace and harmony.
One of the provisions of the new constitution is that national elections could now be held as early as August 2012, rather than in December 2012.
We had originally planned to hold the Sixth World Conference of Friends in August 2012. Since Kenyan Friends, who are hosting the World Conference, will naturally want to focus on the election if it is being conducted at that time, we have decided that it would not be appropriate to plan to hold the World Conference in August.
However, we are pleased to announce that our proposed venue, Kabarak University, near Nakuru, Kenya is able to accommodate us in April 2012.
Therefore, we are announcing new dates for the World Conference: 17 to 25 April 2012.
FWCC General Secretary Nancy Irving says "Although this brings the dates of the Sixth World Conference forward, we are pleased that we can do this, as Kenyan Friends are excited about hosting the wider family of Friends. It will be a challenge to accommodate this change so quickly, but I am confident that together we can do it."
