These seminars are open to anyone interested in participating in academic or professional discourses related to their various disciplines, and will explore ways to contribute to the advancement of civilization. If you know of others who are interested in attending, please share this announcement with them.
Within ABS, a growing number of friends are engaged in collective processes of learning and capacity building related to participation in academic and professional discourses. These processes are advancing in response to recent guidance from the Universal House of Justice (24 July 2013). Toward this end, the ABS working groups and their specialized seminars are being structured so that an increasing number of participants can come together to study, share insights, consult, and make plans to advance on a path of learning and capacity building in relation to their fields of academic or professional interest. For more information on the ABS working groups, please visit the ABS website
If you have any questions, please email the Working Group Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
With loving Bahá’í greetings,
Executive Committee of the Association for Bahá’í Studies-North America
