Regional Bahá’í Council

Regional Bahá’í Council

The Regional Bahá’í Council of the Atlantic States is currently responsible for the District of Columbia, Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina, and Virginia.

The 12 Regional Bahá’í Councils in the contiguous 48 United States are institutions that operate as arms of the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of the United States. They coordinate regional efforts to expand Bahá’í outreach to the wider community; analyze approaches to carry out current plans for the growth of Bahá’í service programs for children, youth and adults; implement strategies to help clusters of communities move through stages of growth; and promote neighborhood capacity building, learning, and service.
