Every year, OA provides funds to help underfunded or underrepresented service bodies send their delegates to World Service Business Conference (WSBC). The Delegate Support Fund can pay for Conference-related expenses such as airfare, hotel, transportation, parking, interpreter services, meals, and the WSBC registration fee.
The 2024 Delegate Support Fund application is now posted on the WSBC web page, and completed applications will be accepted by your service body’s affiliated region through October 1 or by the date set in the affiliated region’s bylaws.
After submitting your application for region review, the next step is for the reviewed application to be sent to the World Service Office so that it is received by November 1.
You may also contribute to the Delegate Support Fund, which is a designated OA fund, meaning contributions to this fund can only be used to support delegate attendance at WSBC. To contribute to the Delegate Support Fund, select it in the designation drop-down menu at oa.org/contribute or select this option on the Mail-in Contribution Form.
