30 September 2013

"HAIFA, Israel — The Baha'i International Community announces that its Secretary-General, Dr. Albert Lincoln, is stepping down today after nineteen years of service in that position.

The Secretary-General is the senior officer acting on behalf of the Universal House of Justice, the world governing body of the Baha'i community, in the conduct of its external affairs, including relations with Israel, the host-country of its World Centre.

In this capacity, Dr. Lincoln represented the Baha'i community in international fora and interactions with Government representatives, diplomats, high officials and leaders of thought from many parts of the world. His term of office saw a broadening of relations between the Baha'i World Centre and the people of Israel, including the minority communities, and his efforts in this field were recognized by an honorary doctorate conferred by the University of Haifa in 2010 and an Award of Merit from the City of Haifa in 2013.
