The General Assembly – the highest decision-making body of the WSCF – is the most representative expression of the WSCF’s life where the different members and representatives from all corners of the world have the chance to come together to talk about issues important to their activities and to direct the work of the Federation for the next four years.
The mandate of the General Assembly will be fulfilled by the elected Executive Committee. The Federation is governed by its Constitution and Bye-Laws ratified and amended as needed by the General Assembly.

Dear WSCF 37th General Assembly participants,
Greetings on behalf of the WSCF Executive Committee.
Last March 24, 2020, the WSCF Executive Committee met online to discuss the scenarios of the WSCF General Assembly (GA) and the impact of the pandemic Covid19 this coming June 4 to 12,2020 in Berlin. The Executive Committee also received the recommendation from the GA Local Host Committee on the situation in Germany and the prospects of our GA in June. We also exchanged information from the different parts of the world on the escalating number of cases and its trajectory.
The Executive Committee are one in hearts and minds that the foremost concern is the safety and protection of lives, the well-being of all at this time of unprecedented global crisis. Thru prayerful discernment, the Executive Committee decided to postpone the WSCF 37th General Assembly this coming June and its related events, the WSCF Executive Committee Meetings and the Senior Friends Gathering. The new dates of the GA next year will be announced in the most opportune time, when all the logistics and preparatory arrangements have been re-adjusted and finalized.
At this time of great need, we invite you to pray with us.
