National Representatives Assembly
The National Representative Assembly of The Armenian Apostolic Church of America, Inc. (NRA) is the highest legislative body within our Prelacy. The NRA, as set out in the Prelacy’s By-laws, has the authority to elect a Prelate and an Executive Council to adopt, review, or modify the Prelacy’s activities, to supervise the financial affairs of the Prelacy, including the adoption of an annual budget, and to otherwise supervise and control the ecclesiastical and administrative bodies that exist within the Prelacy.
The Eastern Prelacy concluded its 2019 National Representative Assembly (NRA) on May 20, 2019. Clergy and lay delegates representing our parishes joined the Executive Council (Religious and Lay) at The Sheraton Conference Center in Framingham, Massachusetts, hosted by Whitinsville’s St. Asdvadzadzin Church.
