National GMA COVID-19 Update

It was a hard decision for the National GMA Advisory Council but a vote was made to cancel the 2020 National GMA Camp.  There are so many uncertainties during this time and felt it was a decision that had to be made.  We know that God has a plan that is bigger than all of this and we are praying for His direction in how to proceed with future plans for the National GMA.

Since National Camp has been cancelled the GMA Advisory Council has voted to allow all 2019-20 officers that are willing to serve to continue as officers for 2020-2021.  We understand that some girls may not be able to continue to serve and some may have to be appointed to replace these positions.  Therefore, we are asking girls that qualify and feel led to be a national officer for the 2020-2021 year to fill out the officer survey form.  The National GMA Advisory Council will determine if the applicant is qualified to fill needed positions.  Girls may also be chosen to work with some current officers in mentoring situations and some may be selected to work as support officers for the next year. 

The Advisory Council voted to keep the same theme and project for 2020-2021.

Groups that have raised money for the project this year are asked to go ahead and send it in to Kristen Herring (207 Hidden Valley Loop, Maumelle AR, 72113) by August 1, 2020.  Bro. Freeman is in need of funds to get started on the project. Next year’s project money will be due August 1, 2021. Awards will not be given for project money sent this year but will be given in combination with money sent next year. 

There are some T-shirts that were already printed for camp available in a limited supply; if anyone is interested contact Mandy Townsend @ 501-697-0823.

The Advisory Council is recommending that the National GMA give Daniel Springs a love offering of $5000 to help alleviate some of the financial burdens due to camps being cancelled because of Covid 19.  The Council is asking for each church to cast a vote of approval for the love offering on the Google Docs Vote being disseminated by State and District Promoters.
