National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá'ís of Hong Kong


In April 1974 the National Spiritual Assembly of Hong Kong which included Macau in its jurisdiction, was elected. Macau was assigned four of the fifteen delegates to the Convention. Two pioneers in Macau were elected to the first National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá'ís of Hong Kong: Mr. Thomas Lane, who became its chairman, and Mr. Charles Duncan.

Amatu'l-Bahá Rúhíyyih Khánum represented the Universal House of Justice at that Convention.
